Interesting facts about the cloud webspace hosting service
Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent groups of top-notch web servers. Each different service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic 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 stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud hosting system.
The gigantic cloud web hosting trick. Quite common today.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the webspace hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. This is the reason why the web hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web space hosting provider has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, for inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.
The lack of open source cloud webspace hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web page hosting systems. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the webspace hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web space hosting CPs
Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one server exclusively. All web site hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective one-server web site hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web page hosting CPs
So, you must make a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house developed CPs are: C-EZ1 INC., NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, amounts 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 hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
