The full truth about the cloud site hosting solution

In general, the authentic cloud webspace hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of cutting-edge servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web site hosting trick. Very common at the moment.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. That is why the web site hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud site hosting system at hand, for fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting solutions. There aren't any open source webspace hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web page hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the web space hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one web server solely. All site hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular single-server site hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to invent a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with custom developed web page hosting CPs are: Digital Works Africa, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
