Interesting details about the cloud hosting service
Actually, the actual cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of avant-garde web servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The big cloud web space hosting fraud. Quite common now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such legislative organization. This is why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web page hosting merchant has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the webspace hosting CP as well.
Single server-based webspace hosting Control Panels
Today's popular web space hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on a single web server exclusively. All site hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular single-server web site hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source site hosting CPs
So, you must invent a custom Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with custom built CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
