Interesting details about the cloud site hosting service

Actually, the real cloud site hosting platform serves different hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of very powerful web servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web site hosting system.

The substantial cloud web page hosting fraud. Quite popular at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the site hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. This is why the web site hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web site hosting system at hand, as setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud site hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the web site hosting CP too.

One server-based web page hosting Control Panels

Modern webspace hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one web server only. All site hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these respective single-server hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to invent a custom web page hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting solutions with custom constructed hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web page hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
