Curious details about the cloud website hosting service

Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves separate hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of very powerful servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The massive cloud web site hosting deceit. Very common nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is why the web space hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting merchant has a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a predicament, loads of money must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud webspace hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web site hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud webspace hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the web space hosting CP as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Famous CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on a single server only. All web page hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular single-server hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels are: PC Mechanix Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
