Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of leading edge web servers. Each particular service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the web site hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
If a cPanel-based site hosting wholesaler has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the hosting CP as well.
Famous web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one server solely. All web page hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.
So, you have to create a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of in-house built cloud webspace hosting platforms with in-house manufactured website hosting Control Panels are: MediaTemple, ResellersPanel, FreeHostia, Lonex, 50Webs and NTC Hosting.
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
