The precise truth about the cloud webspace hosting solution

Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves different hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual packs of very advanced web servers. Each individual service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space 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, etc. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud web site hosting deceit. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. That is why the web space hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting vendor has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud site hosting platform at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested as well. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud site hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There aren't any open source Control Panel tools (running with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the web space hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single server exclusively. All web site hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective single-server web site hosting systems and site hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to invent a custom web hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house devised cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed web hosting CPs are: GrandGraphics, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web space hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
