The full truth about the cloud site hosting solution
Actually, the actual cloud site hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of very advanced servers. Each specific service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting hoax. Very common at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web site hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based site hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web site hosting environments. There aren't any open source webspace hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Modern web site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one web server exclusively. All web page hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create a custom website hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed CPs are: New Millennium Tecknology, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud site hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
