The sheer truth about the cloud website hosting solution

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent stacks of very powerful web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web site hosting fraud. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the webspace hosting industry there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such legislative body. This is why the webspace hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of hosting servers must be purchased. 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 unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web space hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the site hosting CP too.

Single server-based web site hosting CPs

Modern web space hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single web server only. All web page hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and webspace hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source web space hosting CPs

So, you must create a custom Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with in-house set up web site hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
