The full truth about the cloud web page hosting service

In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of very powerful web servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP 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 autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud site hosting platform.

The big cloud web site hosting fraud. Very popular these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the web page hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting companies

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting merchant has a cloud site hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, as setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, plenty of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web space hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud site hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the web site hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single server solely. All site hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and webspace hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web site hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of custom created cloud hosting solutions with in-house created hosting Control Panels are: artichosts, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web space hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
