Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual sets of deluxe web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern these days.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent as well. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to build the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to run on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular single-server hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The lack of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom made Control Panels besides us, at Web Hosting Free Trial, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
