Curious details about the cloud site hosting service

Essentially, the genuine cloud web page hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of leading edge web servers. Each single service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web page hosting hoax. Very modern now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such regulative institution. That is the reason why the web hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based web space hosting distributor has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web site hosting system at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, a lot of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.

The absence of open source cloud web space hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web site hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web site hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web space hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web space hosting Control Panels

Popular web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to run on one single web server only. All web page hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web page hosting CPs

So, you must set up an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed site hosting CPs are: Baughman Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
