Curious facts about the cloud web space hosting solution
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of top-notch web servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The colossal cloud site hosting hoax. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such legislative institution. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, a lot of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web space hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based CPs
Popular webspace hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one single server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these respective one-server web space hosting platforms and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built web page hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of in-house invented cloud hosting platforms with in-house set up web site hosting Control Panels are: Linux Hosts Inc., NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
