Curious details about the cloud hosting service

In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves different hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of top-quality web servers. Each different service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud hosting hoax. Quite modern today.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the hosting business there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. This is the reason why the webspace hosting traders speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web space hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, because establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.

The absence of open source cloud web page hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web page hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud webspace hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the Control Panel too.

One server-based web space hosting Control Panels

Famous web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one single web server exclusively. All web page hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these given single-server site hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you must invent a custom site hosting CP that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good examples of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom made webspace hosting Control Panels are:, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
