The whole truth about the cloud website hosting service

Actually, the real cloud site hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of very advanced web servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud site hosting platform.

The huge cloud site hosting scam. Very popular at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the web site hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the web site hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web site hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source webspace hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web site hosting CPs

Popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one server only. All web space hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these particular one-server webspace hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source webspace hosting CPs

So, you have to develop an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom built cloud website hosting systems with in-house created website hosting Control Panels are: Hardball Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel

Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
