The full truth about the cloud web site hosting service

Essentially, the real cloud webspace hosting platform serves different hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of avant-garde servers. Each single service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud web site hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting deceit. Quite popular at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is why the webspace hosting vendors speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting companies

If a cPanel-based web space hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud hosting system at hand, as fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The absence of open source cloud site hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud webspace hosting environments. There are no open source hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud web site hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the web page hosting CP as well.

One server-based web site hosting CPs

Modern webspace hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one single web server only. All web page hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source webspace hosting CPs

So, you have to develop an in-house built web site hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting solutions with custom invented hosting CPs are: Ikaros Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
