The facts about the cloud web space hosting service

Essentially, the authentic cloud site hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different sets of top-notch servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The massive cloud website hosting fraud. Very common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud site hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is why the web site hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting firm has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, because of the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web space hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the web space hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web site hosting CPs

Today's popular site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one single web server solely. All web space hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these specific one-server site hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting solutions with custom created site hosting Control Panels are: Glomulser Web hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
