The absolute truth about the cloud web site hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud webspace hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of top-quality web servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage 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 separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web space hosting system.

The great cloud site hosting swindle. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud site hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the site hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the webspace hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, many web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web page hosting system at hand, for devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud site hosting platforms. There are no open source site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud webspace hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the web site hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web site hosting CPs

Contemporary web site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one web server solely. All web page hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server site hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web site hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house developed web space hosting CPs are: hosting-people, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware provision fares

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
