The sheer truth about the cloud webspace hosting solution

In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of very advanced web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud webspace hosting deceit. Quite popular these days.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such regulative organization. This is the reason why the webspace hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web page hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, lots of money must be invested too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source webspace hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud webspace hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Popular web site hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one single server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these respective single-server hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop an in-house built webspace hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting CPs are: Voila, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
