The precise truth about the cloud web page hosting service

Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of leading edge web servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The great cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web site hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such regulative organization. This is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers

If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web site hosting environments. There are no open source web page hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web space hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based CPs

Modern hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of custom created cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed web site hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware provision rates

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
