Curious facts about the cloud web site hosting service

Actually, the real cloud webspace hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent bunches of top-notch servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great cloud web hosting hoax. Very widespread today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting industry there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is why the webspace hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based web site hosting corporation has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because of the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud webspace hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web space hosting environments. There are no open source web site hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the web site hosting CP too.

Single server-based webspace hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one web server solely. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific single-server site hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source webspace hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom webspace hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised site hosting Control Panels are: Holmes Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
