The truth about the cloud web page hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud webspace hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of very powerful servers. Each different service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud hosting fraud. Very widespread at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the site hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud webspace hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud webspace hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Contemporary site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one server exclusively. All site hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these particular one-server site hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source CPs

So, you have to invent a custom web hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house invented site hosting Control Panels are: Sonic Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web page 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 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
