In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of deluxe web servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting deceit. Quite modern these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must make the hosting CP too.

Single server-based CPs

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must create a custom Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
