Interesting facts about the cloud web hosting solution

Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of high-end servers. Each individual service set makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical 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 website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The great cloud hosting swindle. Very widespread these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is why the site hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, for constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud web site hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud webspace hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the site hosting CP too.

One server-based hosting CPs

Popular web site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on a single web server exclusively. All site hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these given one-server website hosting systems and site hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web page hosting CPs

So, you have to set up a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
