In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves different hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual sets of very powerful servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct a custom web hosting CP that will work impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at HostSolutionz, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
