The pure thruth about the cloud site hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of cutting-edge servers. Each different service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.

The big cloud hosting scam. Quite popular at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based web page hosting merchant has a cloud web space hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web space hosting system at hand, since building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud web site hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web page hosting environments. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web page hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based hosting Control Panels

Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on a single web server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific single-server web page hosting platforms and webspace hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source CPs

So, you must make an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom created cloud web hosting platforms with custom invented Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
