The truth about the cloud web site hosting solution

In general, the real cloud web space hosting platform serves individual hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of high-end servers. Each individual service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The massive cloud hosting fraud. Quite popular now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud site hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the web page hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting supplier has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, many hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud webspace hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud webspace hosting platforms. There are no open source web space hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the webspace hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based site hosting CPs

Modern webspace hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one server solely. All web space hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these given one-server web page hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web site hosting CPs

So, you must make a custom web page hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud hosting solutions with in-house set up website hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
