The pure thruth about the cloud web hosting service

Actually, the real cloud webspace hosting platform serves individual hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very advanced web servers. Each specific service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic 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 statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud site hosting platform.

The big cloud hosting trick. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the web page hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting trader has a cloud web space hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud webspace hosting solutions. There aren't any open source webspace hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud web space hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the hosting CP as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these given single-server web space hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source site hosting CPs

So, you must build a custom hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
