Interesting facts about the cloud hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud web page hosting platform serves individual hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of very advanced servers. Each particular service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email 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 independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting swindle. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud site hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. That is why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web page hosting system at hand, as developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, plenty of money has to be invested too. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud webspace hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the webspace hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single server solely. All webspace hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source site hosting CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built website hosting CPs are: Easy Street Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal investment required, just 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 do know how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
