The facts about the cloud webspace hosting solution

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different stacks of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.

The great cloud web site hosting swindle. Very popular these days.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud site hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the webspace hosting business niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting wholesaler has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web page hosting system at hand, because building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting systems. There aren't any open source web site hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web space hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web space hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based CPs

Today's popular web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on a single server solely. All web page hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these particular one-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to make an in-house built Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud hosting platforms with custom set up webspace hosting CPs are: Linux Hosts Ltd., NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
