Curious facts about the cloud web hosting service

Essentially, the authentic cloud site hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, etc., on different stacks of top-quality servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great cloud web page hosting fraud. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is why the webspace hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud site hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.

The absence of open source cloud web site hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud site hosting environments. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the webspace hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based site hosting Control Panels

Modern Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one server solely. All hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these given single-server hosting systems and web site hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built web space hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom made cloud web hosting systems with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
