Curious facts about the cloud site hosting service
In general, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual stacks of deluxe servers. Each individual service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The immense cloud web page hosting trick. Very common nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based hosting retailer has a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. 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 wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The lack of open source cloud site hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the webspace hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on a single server only. All web page hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific one-server web site hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source CPs
So, you have to invent a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting systems with in-house built hosting Control Panels are: FLIPPN MEDIA, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
