Curious details about the cloud web space hosting service

In general, the real cloud web site hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-quality web servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.

The colossal cloud site hosting deceit. Very widespread at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud site hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is why the webspace hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting firms

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, many servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of money must be spent too. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web space hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific single-server web site hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source webspace hosting CPs

So, you have to devise an in-house built site hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud website hosting solutions with in-house developed hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
