The whole truth about the cloud web hosting service

Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves different hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of very powerful web servers. Each different service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud site hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web site hosting hoax. Quite popular now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web site hosting merchandiser has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud site hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud site hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web page hosting CP too.

One server-based CPs

Popular web space hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one server only. All site hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these particular one-server web space hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source web site hosting Control Panels

So, you must create an in-house built web site hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good instances of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with custom invented web hosting CPs are: suptime, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud hosting hardware provision rates

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
