The complete truth about the cloud web space hosting service

In general, the real cloud web site hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of leading edge servers. Each specific service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud hosting swindle. Quite popular now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting business there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the web space hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting traders

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting distributor has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud site hosting system at hand, as devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.

The lack of open source cloud web site hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web page hosting solutions. There are no open source web page hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud web page hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the web space hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based webspace hosting Control Panels

Modern webspace hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on one web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these specific one-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good instances of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with custom built CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware provision rates

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
