Interesting facts about the cloud web site hosting service
In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual hosts of high-end web servers. Each different service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email 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 make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web space hosting trick. Quite common nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is why the site hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web page hosting vendor has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, as building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source webspace hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web space hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the Control Panel too.
Single server-based site hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one single web server exclusively. All web site hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular single-server webspace hosting platforms and CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built webspace hosting Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good examples of custom created cloud hosting systems with in-house invented web site hosting CPs are: Dubajic Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
