Curious details about the cloud website hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves different hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of very advanced web servers. Each particular service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The huge cloud web hosting hoax. Quite popular at present.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud site hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud site hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested as well. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web space hosting solutions. There are no open source web site hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web page hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the CP too.
One server-based site hosting CPs
Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one server only. All hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given single-server web space hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up a custom web hosting CP that will run impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised web hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
