The absolute truth about the cloud web page hosting service

In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent sets of top-notch web servers. Each single service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.

The immense cloud webspace hosting deceit. Very common at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting companies

If a cPanel-based webspace hosting retailer has a cloud web page hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web site hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, a lot of money must be invested as well. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web site hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based hosting CPs

Today's popular site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on one single web server only. All site hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper instances of custom created cloud web hosting solutions with in-house set up hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts 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 hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
