Curious facts about the cloud web space hosting service

Essentially, the genuine cloud web space hosting platform serves separate hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different stacks of leading edge servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage 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 different service clusters will create the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting swindle. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound 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 universal ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the site hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling institution. This is the reason why the web space hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based web space hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, for establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, plenty of money has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the site hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web page hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on one web server only. All web page hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and site hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web site hosting CPs

So, you must build an in-house built CP that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of custom made cloud website hosting solutions with custom made hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
