Curious details about the cloud webspace hosting service

Actually, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of avant-garde servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting swindle. Very modern these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud site hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the webspace hosting industry there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. That is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting vendor has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, due to the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web page hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud site hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the Control Panel as well.

Single server-based site hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these respective single-server web page hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to make a custom site hosting CP that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of in-house developed cloud hosting solutions with custom devised Control Panels are: GB Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
