Curious details about the cloud hosting service

Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent groups of high-end web servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web site hosting system.

The enormous cloud web site hosting scam. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web page hosting trader has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud site hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web site hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to devise the webspace hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based webspace hosting CPs

Today's popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these respective single-server web site hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to invent a custom hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud website hosting systems with custom built web site hosting Control Panels are: Smartway Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
