Interesting facts about the cloud webspace hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud webspace hosting platform serves various hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of leading edge web servers. Each different service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud webspace hosting system.

The great cloud hosting hoax. Very common these days.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud site hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud site hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be invested as well. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud web page hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting platforms. There aren't any open source hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud web page hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on a single server exclusively. All web site hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective single-server web page hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source web space hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house devised cloud website hosting systems with custom created webspace hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware provision expenses

The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web page hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
