Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of deluxe web servers. Each specific service set generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud website hosting hoax. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based CPs

Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you have to establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at webgeardefault, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
