The absolute truth about the cloud webspace hosting solution

In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of top-quality web servers. Each individual service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a 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 beget the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The big cloud site hosting deceit. Very common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such regulative body. That is why the web hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web site hosting distributor has a cloud site hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud web site hosting system at hand, due to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested too. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the web space hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Modern webspace hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one single web server only. All web space hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective one-server web page hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you must create an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house invented web space hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
