Curious facts about the cloud web space hosting service

Actually, the authentic cloud web space hosting solution serves individual hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of top-quality servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud webspace hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting hoax. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the web space hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting merchant has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, as devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud site hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web site hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on a single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built site hosting CP that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of custom built cloud hosting solutions with in-house made CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
