Curious details about the cloud web page hosting solution

Essentially, the authentic cloud site hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very powerful web servers. Each specific service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud site hosting system.

The great cloud web page hosting swindle. Very common now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web site hosting system at hand, since building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, plenty of money must be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There are no open source web page hosting CP devices (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the webspace hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based webspace hosting CPs

Popular web site hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single server only. All web page hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these given single-server site hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house built cloud website hosting systems with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
