Recommendations for WHM/cPanel Cloud


I am looking for some cloud hosting with full root access, WHM/cPanel. And this porbably doesn't need to be said but just to be sure I want something thats truley cloud hosting. I am going to build my own hosting business on top of this and I want the scalability and redundancy of cloud hosting, that is if I can find one with whm/cpanel at a good price.

For $40/mo you can get a lower end Cloud with cpanel/whm. Check out VPS.net

We typically keep the details of our infrastructure private for sake of a competitive advantage, however to clear up this huge inconsistency I'll release a lot of details as to how our cloud works.

We have 3 datacenter locations in the United States, 1 in the United Kingdom, and 1 in Japan opening later this month. Within our datacenters we build out multiple cloud zones, each zone is independent of each other and has typically around 1.5TB of RAM available to it, all RAM/CPU is housed in hypervisors which are the "muscle" of the cloud, while the information is kept on CP servers and the multiple redundant SANs in the cloud. When you launch a VPS, it'll claim it's hypervisor, and will work off of that one hypervisor, however, if you outgrow that hypervisor, you could be hot moved with no downtime at all to a new hypervisor as needed.

Additionally, using our DNS utility, we've given our customers the ability to automatically put in place a failover DNS option. This means that if your primary datacenter goes down, your secondary datacenter (and remember, we have 4 to choose from) will take over the process of hosting your website.

Finally, we have the options of our content distribution networks, through the agreements we've signed with Akamai & Highwinds. While they're not true "clouds" by todays standards, since their goal is more-or-less to deliver data in the fastest possible path, coupled with our VPS servers, they do make for a great complimentary tool for increasing the speed and redundancy of your website.

any other suggestions for cloud hosting.

Also about VPS.net, I didn't see anything about cpanel/whm do you offer that? Does it cost anything extra?

A huge +1 for VPS.NET.

If you are on an EXTREME budget, they can't be beat. With your VPS node you can expand as needed on the fly, as you sell more you add more. Their billing is up to the minute, so if you lose a customer and don't need that extra node, remove it and the cost goes down immediately. They have dedicated IPs for only $1, additional 25GB storage for $10 and on and on.

Also, they give you free licenses for ISP Manager, which is a competitor to cPanel's WHM. It's not as robust as cPanel and doesn't have the documentation and support of cPanel but it more than does the job for small hosts. I used ISP Manager for several months until I made the revenue to pay for cPanel, which they'll license to you for only $10/month per server.

They also give you a free license to HostBill, which is a competitor to WHMCS or other web hosting solutions. HostBill's support is fantastic, and even though they have only been on the market for 7-8 months they are quickly catching up to WHMCS is most areas, and even surpassing them in others.

Throw on top of that, they give you free SSL certificates, as many as you want that you can then turn around and sell to your clients and it is a no-brainer. Oh, and the more nodes you buy, the cheaper they get... so the more popular you become the more your profit margins increase with your growth.

For $20 a month (the price of one node) you could have a full web hosting solution up and running. That includes the automated control panel, the billing and support system and the space and resources to sell. You won't find a better deal on the net, trust me I've tried.

VPS.NET is a solid company with great support. I'm not going to lie and say that it is always great, as they do have problems with outages like every large host, but they are fairly transparent when they have issues and their support is second to none. If you don't feel your ticket is receiving proper attention you can escalate it to a manager, and they always answer within minutes.

DISCLAIMER: I am not affiliated with VPS.NET or HostBill other than being happy customers of both. I can supply IPs and URLs of sites running on the VPS.NET to confirm if needed.
