The truth about the cloud web page hosting solution

Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of deluxe web servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The enormous cloud web space hosting hoax. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the web site hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing body. That is why the web space hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web page hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, many web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, since creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source CP instruments (operating with the cloud webspace hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the webspace hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based site hosting Control Panels

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

The lack of open source CPs

So, you have to devise a custom webspace hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom devised cloud website hosting systems with custom devised web space hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
