The precise truth about the cloud web site hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud web site hosting solution serves separate hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual stacks of avant-garde servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The immense cloud website hosting scam. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud site hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the webspace hosting business there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the web site hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud hosting system at hand, as setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud site hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud webspace hosting platforms. There are no open source web page hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to devise the Control Panel too.

Single server-based web site hosting Control Panels

Popular web site hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and web space hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you have to devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud hosting platforms with in-house devised web page hosting CPs are: Hostomedia, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
