The pure thruth about the cloud website hosting service

In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of leading edge web servers. Each individual service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web hosting trick. Very modern at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web page hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the web space hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based site hosting distributor has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web space hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single server exclusively. All site hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these respective single-server site hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web site hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with custom set up web site hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
