The sheer truth about the cloud web site hosting service

Essentially, the genuine cloud webspace hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of very advanced web servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.

The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Very popular at present.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the web page hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting merchandiser has a cloud web page hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of money must be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web site hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud site hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the web page hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular webspace hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given single-server web page hosting systems and webspace hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to construct an in-house built CP that will operate impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting systems with custom invented web hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud site hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
