Curious facts about the cloud webspace hosting service

Essentially, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves different hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate packs of top-notch web servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all operate 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 storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud web site hosting system.

The great cloud hosting swindle. Very popular at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting traders" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting trader has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, a lot of money must be spent too. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud web space hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source site hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the site hosting CP too.

Single server-based web space hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on one server solely. All web page hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific one-server web site hosting systems and webspace hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source web space hosting Control Panels

So, you have to devise a custom website hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house constructed cloud hosting platforms with in-house created web site hosting CPs are: GrandGraphics, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud site hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
