The whole truth about the cloud web page hosting service

Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous groups of very powerful servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The big cloud hosting trick. Very common now.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the webspace hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. That is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based web site hosting wholesaler has a cloud site hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud site hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting solutions. There are no open source site hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web space hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based webspace hosting CPs

Contemporary web site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with custom devised site hosting Control Panels are: Duo Servers, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware provision expenses

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
