The truth about the cloud web site hosting service

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of high-end servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web site hosting swindle. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting business niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the site hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web page hosting corporation has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, many hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web page hosting system at hand, since inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be spent as well. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud site hosting systems. There are no open source web space hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based web space hosting CPs

Contemporary webspace hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on one server only. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these specific single-server web page hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web page hosting CPs

So, you must invent a custom Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good examples of custom built cloud web hosting systems with in-house set up Control Panels are: BRAND A CLOUD, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
