The full truth about the cloud web hosting service

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of leading edge servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web space hosting deceit. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web page hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is the reason why the webspace hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, lots of money must be invested too. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud site hosting platforms. There are no open source webspace hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. Secondly, you must make the hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Modern site hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on a single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must invent an in-house built web space hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting systems with in-house created webspace hosting Control Panels are: Lime Server, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
