The truth about the cloud web space hosting solution

Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual packs of deluxe servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.

The enormous cloud site hosting swindle. Quite common nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the webspace hosting business there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is the reason why the web space hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web page hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, since setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud webspace hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the web page hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web site hosting Control Panels

Modern web page hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one web server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web space hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source Control Panels

So, you must set up a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate examples of custom built cloud hosting solutions with in-house built web hosting CPs are: The Gate, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
