Curious facts about the cloud web hosting solution

Actually, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of top-quality servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting hoax. Quite modern these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. This is why the webspace hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web page hosting merchant has a cloud web page hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, in that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, plenty of cash must be invested too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud site hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source web site hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud site hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the webspace hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web page hosting Control Panels

Today's popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single server solely. All webspace hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web space hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web space hosting Control Panels

So, you must build a custom hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
