Interesting facts about the cloud web page hosting service

In general, the real cloud web space hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of very advanced servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud site hosting deceit. Very popular today.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is the reason why the web page hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web site hosting merchant has a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The lack of open source cloud web page hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web space hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud site hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the web page hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based site hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one web server solely. All site hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given one-server web site hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source site hosting CPs

So, you have to establish an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of custom devised cloud hosting platforms with custom invented CPs are: Net For Africa, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest contribution required, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand 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, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
