The precise truth about the cloud website hosting solution

Essentially, the genuine cloud web page hosting solution serves different hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The massive cloud web space hosting fraud. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. This is the reason why the web hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based site hosting company has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, as creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.

The absence of open source cloud site hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web site hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one single web server solely. All web space hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these given one-server webspace hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate examples of custom built cloud hosting systems with custom devised CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
