The whole truth about the cloud site hosting service

Actually, the real cloud web space hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of very advanced servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is why the webspace hosting merchants speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based web site hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web space hosting system at hand, in that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of money has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud site hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source site hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web page hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the web space hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web site hosting CPs

Popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on a single web server only. All hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these respective single-server web page hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source site hosting CPs

So, you must create an in-house built webspace hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented web site hosting Control Panels are: Digital Monkey, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web site hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
