Interesting details about the cloud hosting service
In general, the actual cloud web page hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of high-end servers. Each particular service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The substantial cloud web page hosting trick. Quite modern today.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud site hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web page hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is why the site hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting providers
If a cPanel-based site hosting company has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, because inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web site hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web site hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based webspace hosting CPs
Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one web server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to devise a custom web hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good examples of custom made cloud hosting systems with in-house developed web page hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
