The pure thruth about the cloud web site hosting solution

Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of top-notch servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud site hosting fraud. Quite popular now.

There is so much misunderstanding 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. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web page hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the CP too.

One server-based web site hosting Control Panels

Popular hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single web server only. All site hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and webspace hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop an in-house built Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good instances of custom devised cloud hosting platforms with custom manufactured web space hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision rates

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
