The facts about the cloud hosting solution
In general, the real cloud site hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of cutting-edge web servers. Each single service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The big cloud webspace hosting fraud. Very widespread nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. This is why the web page hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting companies
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting firm has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of money must be invested as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.
The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud webspace hosting systems. There are no open source site hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web site hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the web page hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web space hosting CPs
Modern web page hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on a single server only. All web site hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web site hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to construct a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of custom manufactured cloud hosting platforms with in-house created website hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
