Curious details about the cloud web hosting solution

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual sets of high-end web servers. Each separate service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The enormous cloud hosting deceit. Quite modern these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the web site hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. That is the reason why the webspace hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web space hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web page hosting system at hand, as developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The absence of open source cloud web page hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web space hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web site hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one web server only. All hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of custom devised cloud hosting platforms with custom built web space hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision charges

The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
