The complete truth about the cloud hosting service

Essentially, the real cloud web page hosting solution serves separate hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual sets of cutting-edge servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal 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 statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web site hosting swindle. Quite common these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. This is why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, as inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP devices (running with the cloud hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web page hosting Control Panels

Famous site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one single server solely. All web space hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web page hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to construct a custom site hosting CP that will function uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with custom constructed web hosting CPs are: Van Nimmen Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware equipment prices

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
