The truth about the cloud web space hosting service

In general, the real cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of leading edge servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP 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 build the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting trick. Quite common at present.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is because in the web space hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is the reason why the site hosting distributors speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web site hosting distributor has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, a lot of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud web space hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There aren't any open source webspace hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud site hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the CP too.

One server-based web site hosting CPs

Contemporary webspace hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one server only. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and webspace hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to invent an in-house built webspace hosting CP that will run unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper examples of custom made cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised site hosting CPs are: artichosts, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment required, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
