Interesting details about the cloud web page hosting solution

Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves different hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of very powerful servers. Each different service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud webspace hosting trick. Very common nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, since devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud webspace hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and site hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct an in-house built CP that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud hosting platforms with custom made website hosting Control Panels are: Hardball Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
