The truth about the cloud site hosting service

In general, the genuine cloud web site hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different hosts of deluxe servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud hosting trick. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based site hosting company has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, lots of money has to be invested too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud site hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source webspace hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the site hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web space hosting Control Panels

Popular web page hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one single server exclusively. All web page hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these respective single-server web page hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you have to devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of custom devised cloud hosting systems with custom invented web site hosting Control Panels are: Names Lagoon, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
