The pure thruth about the cloud hosting solution

In general, the authentic cloud web space hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of very powerful web servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting deceit. Very popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies

If a cPanel-based hosting merchant has a cloud site hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, since constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be spent too. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web site hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web page hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single server exclusively. All site hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and webspace hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to devise an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good instances of in-house constructed cloud hosting platforms with custom developed web site hosting CPs are: 5 Minute Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web site hosting hardware provision rates

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
