Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous groups of leading edge web servers. Each different service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. That is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, lots of money must be invested as well. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the website hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting CP that will run unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at GIA Web Hosting and Web Design, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
