The truth about the cloud web page hosting service
Essentially, the real cloud web site hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of top-notch servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.
The big cloud hosting hoax. Very common these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based site hosting supplier has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, because establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud site hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the site hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based hosting CPs
Contemporary CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and webspace hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom webspace hosting CP that will function faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of custom built cloud hosting systems with custom created web space hosting Control Panels are: enet, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
