Cloud web hosting

The Truth About The Cloud Website Hosting Solution

Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different bunches of top-quality web servers. Each single service group forms a cluster.

All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service’s load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc.

All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud web page hosting system.

The substantial cloud web page hosting deceit. Quite common these days.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the «cloud webspace hosting providers» speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no stipulations at all.

The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. This is the reason why the web page hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let’s find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based «cloud» hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let’s find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it’s quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web page hosting system at hand, for establishing one demands years.

Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, plenty of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That’s an enormous predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting systems

There are no open source cloud webspace hosting solutions. There aren’t any open source site hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud web site hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based site hosting CPs

Today’s popular web space hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one single server only. All web space hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular one-server webspace hosting systems and web page hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source site hosting CPs

So, you must make an in-house built web site hosting CP that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom created cloud site hosting systems with custom constructed web page hosting Control Panels are: MediaTemple, ResellersPanel, FreeHostia, Lonex, 50Webs and NTC Hosting.

Cloud web site hosting hardware provision expenses

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD.

That’s omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000.

Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting systems can be discovered out there… and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure… and practically cloudless!
