The truth about the cloud site hosting service

In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate sets of top-notch servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a webspace hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting scam. Quite modern today.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the web space hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting company has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, loads of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud webspace hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the webspace hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one server solely. All site hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific single-server webspace hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting solutions with custom created web site hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud site hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
