The absolute truth about the cloud hosting service

In general, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of high-end web servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting system.

The enormous cloud hosting trick. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting business there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such administrative institution. This is why the web page hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based site hosting distributor has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud site hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based webspace hosting Control Panels

Popular web space hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on a single web server exclusively. All web page hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific one-server web page hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source webspace hosting CPs

So, you must make an in-house built web site hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper instances of in-house built cloud hosting systems with custom made web site hosting Control Panels are: Hardball Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
