Interesting facts about the cloud hosting solution

In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of cutting-edge web servers. Each separate service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical 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 website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.

The massive cloud webspace hosting deceit. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is why the site hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting traders

If a cPanel-based site hosting vendor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud site hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single web server only. All site hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server web site hosting platforms and web page hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source CPs

So, you must set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of in-house created cloud hosting solutions with in-house built web page hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
