The truth about the cloud web page hosting solution

In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of deluxe web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The enormous cloud site hosting scam. Quite common nowadays.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. This is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting vendor has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, multiple web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, since establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud site hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting solutions. There are no open source web space hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you must make the web space hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based Control Panels

Modern site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these particular one-server webspace hosting platforms and web site hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting solutions with in-house made web hosting CPs are: Hostmite, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
