The full truth about the cloud web site hosting service

In general, the real cloud web site hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different bunches of leading edge servers. Each single service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud webspace hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting supplier has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, in that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be invested too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud webspace hosting platforms. There aren't any open source Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web page hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the site hosting CP as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Modern Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and site hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source CPs

So, you must build an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with custom created webspace hosting CPs are:, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment required, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
