The sheer truth about the cloud web space hosting service

Essentially, the real cloud web page hosting solution serves individual hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of top-quality servers. Each individual service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud web page hosting trick. Very common these days.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting traders" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the web space hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms

If a cPanel-based site hosting corporation has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, a lot of money must be invested too. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting systems

There are no open source cloud site hosting environments. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the CP as well.

Single server-based site hosting Control Panels

Today's popular webspace hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one web server exclusively. All site hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these respective single-server web site hosting platforms and webspace hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud website hosting systems with custom made web site hosting Control Panels are: Mad about Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
