The absolute truth about the cloud hosting solution

Essentially, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of top-notch web servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such regulative organization. That is why the site hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous hosting servers have to 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 explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.

The lack of open source cloud site hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source webspace hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web site hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based webspace hosting CPs

Popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one web server only. All web site hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these particular single-server web space hosting platforms and web site hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop a custom web space hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting platforms with custom developed hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
