The sheer truth about the cloud web page hosting service

Essentially, the real cloud site hosting platform serves individual hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of top-notch web servers. Each different service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative institution. This is the reason why the web space hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud site hosting platform at hand, since developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web space hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud web space hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the webspace hosting CP as well.

One server-based web page hosting CPs

Popular web page hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular one-server hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured Control Panels are: Hop A Cloud, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
