The facts about the cloud web hosting service

In general, the actual cloud webspace hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate sets of avant-garde servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting hoax. Very common at present.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the site hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based site hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the web site hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based Control Panels

Modern website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web page hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must create a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good examples of custom invented cloud website hosting platforms with custom set up site hosting CPs are: Provident Host, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
