Curious details about the cloud webspace hosting service

In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of top-quality servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud web space hosting hoax. Quite popular these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the webspace hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting corporation has a cloud site hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, many servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, because of the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, lots of cash must be invested too. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The absence of open source cloud web space hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source webspace hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud webspace hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web site hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on a single web server only. All site hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these given single-server hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop a custom site hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with custom built web space hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web site hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
