Interesting details about the cloud web site hosting service

In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The great cloud hosting deceit. Very popular today.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such administrative institution. That is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, since establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, lots of money has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big drawback.

The lack of open source cloud web site hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source CP devices (functioning with the cloud web site hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the web page hosting CP too.

Single server-based webspace hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these given one-server web site hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source CPs

So, you have to make a custom web site hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud website hosting solutions with in-house constructed hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
