Interesting facts about the cloud web hosting service
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different stacks of high-end web servers. Each individual service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud site hosting fraud. Quite popular at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is why the webspace hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting firms
If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud site hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, as constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web space hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web page hosting environments. There aren't any open source Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud site hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web site hosting Control Panels
Modern Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one server only. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web space hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Good instances of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed webspace hosting CPs are: Verykokko Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
