The precise truth about the cloud web site hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.
The massive cloud hosting hoax. Very popular now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting wholesaler has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud site hosting platform at hand, in that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The absence of open source cloud web site hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web site hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the site hosting CP as well.
One server-based web space hosting CPs
Famous Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one web server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular one-server site hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create a custom site hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house developed site hosting CPs are: khmer Linux, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
