The facts about the cloud website hosting service
In general, the actual cloud web page hosting platform serves separate hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of top-notch servers. Each particular service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The immense cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is why the web hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web space hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, as making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud site hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the web space hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Today's popular web page hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one single server only. All web site hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given single-server web site hosting systems and web site hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source site hosting CPs
So, you have to build an in-house built web page hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good examples of custom devised cloud website hosting platforms with custom devised web space hosting Control Panels are: HD Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
