The full truth about the cloud webspace hosting service

Essentially, the genuine cloud web page hosting solution serves individual hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of high-end web servers. Each single service group makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic 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 independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common nowadays.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the site hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially 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" hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, in that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested too. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The lack of open source cloud web site hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud webspace hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the web site hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web page hosting CPs

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one server exclusively. All web site hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific one-server hosting platforms and web page hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to invent an in-house built site hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of custom devised cloud website hosting platforms with in-house created web site hosting CPs are: Virtual Prime Location, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
