Interesting details about the cloud hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud web space hosting solution serves different hosting services like storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different sets of high-end web servers. Each individual service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would 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 hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud site hosting platform.

The big cloud webspace hosting fraud. Quite common these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web page hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is why the web space hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web space hosting provider has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash must be spent too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud webspace hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the web page hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one web server only. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective single-server web site hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom web page hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good instances of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with custom invented web hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
