The whole truth about the cloud web site hosting service

In general, the actual cloud web site hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different stacks of leading edge web servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud web space hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting scam. Quite modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the web space hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based web page hosting provider has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, lots of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the web site hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one web server exclusively. All site hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and webspace hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source webspace hosting Control Panels

So, you have to establish an in-house built webspace hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
