The sheer truth about the cloud web hosting solution
Actually, the actual cloud web site hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of cutting-edge servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting deceit. Quite modern now.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. This is why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web site hosting vendor has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web site hosting system at hand, in that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud webspace hosting systems. There aren't any open source Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web space hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web site hosting CPs
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on a single web server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective single-server web page hosting platforms and web site hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise an in-house built Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper examples of custom built cloud web hosting systems with custom developed hosting Control Panels are: WebHost-ing.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
