Interesting details about the cloud webspace hosting service

In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on individual stacks of avant-garde web servers. Each different service set makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.

The big cloud web page hosting scam. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the web hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based site hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, in that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud site hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source webspace hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud web space hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular web site hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given single-server site hosting systems and CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish an in-house built site hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured webspace hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
