The truth about the cloud web site hosting solution

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent bunches of high-end web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web space hosting hoax. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting corporations" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is because in the site hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the web page hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based site hosting trader has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the web space hosting CP too.

One server-based web space hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single web server solely. All site hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these given single-server web site hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web page hosting CPs

So, you must establish an in-house built webspace hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of custom created cloud hosting solutions with in-house built hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
