The full truth about the cloud web space hosting solution

In general, the real cloud webspace hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of top-quality web servers. Each single service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web site hosting trick. Quite popular at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the web site hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the web page hosting vendors speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, in that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web space hosting environments. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web space hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the web page hosting CP too.

Single server-based hosting Control Panels

Modern hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective single-server site hosting platforms and web space hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source webspace hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate an in-house built web hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good examples of custom invented cloud website hosting solutions with custom built webspace hosting CPs are: AfterHost, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
