The pure thruth about the cloud webspace hosting service

Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of top-notch servers. Each individual service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud site hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising body. This is why the web page hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based site hosting trader has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud site hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be invested too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud site hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud site hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the web site hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based webspace hosting CPs

Famous webspace hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on one server solely. All site hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective one-server web space hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud webspace hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
