The facts about the cloud web site hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of very powerful web servers. Each separate service group creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud site hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web page hosting trick. Quite widespread now.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the web site hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting firm has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, many web servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud web site hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web site hosting environments. There are no open source site hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud site hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the hosting CP too.

One server-based Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on a single server exclusively. All web site hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these specific single-server web site hosting platforms and web site hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house created hosting Control Panels are:, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
