The absolute truth about the cloud website hosting service

Actually, the real cloud web space hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of high-end servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. That is why the webspace hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web site hosting provider has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source webspace hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web site hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the CP too.

Single server-based webspace hosting CPs

Famous site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one single server only. All webspace hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source Control Panels

So, you must set up an in-house built site hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of custom built cloud website hosting platforms with in-house developed Control Panels are: Tierra Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
