Interesting details about the cloud hosting solution

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of top-quality servers. Each specific service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email 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 individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.

The massive cloud web site hosting scam. Quite popular today.

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 extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting business there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the web space hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, because constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web page hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the web site hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based webspace hosting CPs

Modern web space hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one single web server solely. All site hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and CPs are installed.

The lack of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you must create an in-house built Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud hosting systems with custom invented CPs are:, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD 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 hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
