The sheer truth about the cloud web space hosting service
Actually, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual packs of avant-garde web servers. Each different service set produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud webspace hosting system.
The substantial cloud web site hosting hoax. Very common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going 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 popular unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. That is why the web site hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based site hosting supplier has a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud site hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the site hosting CP too.
Single server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single server exclusively. All web page hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these particular single-server web site hosting platforms and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built web page hosting CPs are: Web Hosting Indy, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
