The sheer truth about the cloud webspace hosting solution
Essentially, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent hosts of leading edge servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The mammoth cloud website hosting scam. Very common now.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web page hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. That is the reason why the site hosting companies speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting trader has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, as fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud web page hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting environments. There aren't any open source web space hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud site hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the webspace hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Famous webspace hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to run on one single web server only. All site hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific single-server site hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of custom created cloud hosting systems with in-house built web hosting CPs are: Heartland Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
