Interesting details about the cloud web space hosting service

In general, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of leading edge web servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical 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 site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The big cloud web space hosting scam. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is the reason why the webspace hosting providers speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based web space hosting firm has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, because fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web space hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web page hosting CPs

Modern hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one server only. All web site hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must create a custom website hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of in-house made cloud hosting platforms with custom developed web hosting CPs are: BigHost, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
