Interesting Facts About The Cloud Web Hosting Service

Essentially, the genuine cloud webspace hosting solution serves individual hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different hosts of top-notch servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The big cloud site hosting trick. Quite common today.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the webspace hosting merchants speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web space hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web space hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested too. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big drawback.

The absence of open source cloud web space hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There are no open source hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud webspace hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the Control Panel too.

Single server-based web site hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on a single server only. All web site hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these respective one-server hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web space hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house devised cloud webspace hosting systems with custom built webspace hosting Control Panels are: MediaTemple, ResellersPanel, FreeHostia, Lonex, 50Webs and NTC Hosting.

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest investment required, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
