The sheer truth about the cloud webspace hosting service

In general, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of very advanced servers. Each separate service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting deceit. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web page hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such legislative body. This is why the web site hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web site hosting company has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web page hosting system at hand, because of the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud webspace hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web page hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web site hosting CPs

Contemporary web space hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on one single server solely. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular single-server webspace hosting platforms and web space hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built web site hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good examples of in-house built cloud hosting solutions with custom set up webspace hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
