The facts about the cloud web space hosting solution

Actually, the genuine cloud site hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate packs of very powerful web servers. Each specific service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web site hosting hoax. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the webspace hosting industry there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the web page hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web site hosting merchandiser has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud web site hosting system at hand, because making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested too. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The absence of open source cloud site hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web space hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the web page hosting CP too.

One server-based webspace hosting CPs

Today's popular webspace hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on one single server solely. All site hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to establish a custom web site hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented web site hosting Control Panels are: ProCommerce, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud webspace hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
