The absolute truth about the cloud website hosting service

Essentially, the real cloud web site hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting hoax. Very popular today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting merchants" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the web hosting companies speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting firms

If a cPanel-based site hosting retailer has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, many hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, as constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a predicament, loads of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The lack of open source cloud webspace hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud site hosting solutions. There aren't any open source site hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular web site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on one single server solely. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house set up web site hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web page hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
