Curious facts about the cloud site hosting service

In general, the genuine cloud web space hosting platform serves various hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of very advanced web servers. Each single service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.

The big cloud web site hosting scam. Very popular at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud site hosting suppliers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting industry niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is why the web space hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web space hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud web space hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud webspace hosting environments. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP tools (working with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the web page hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Modern web site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on one server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular single-server web space hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source hosting CPs

So, you must create an in-house built site hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
