The facts about the cloud webspace hosting service
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of high-end servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The massive cloud website hosting deceit. Quite popular at the moment.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud site hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web site hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud site hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on a single web server solely. All web space hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these respective single-server webspace hosting platforms and web space hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source web site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made webspace hosting CPs are: www.mischar.net, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
