Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual sets of deluxe servers. Each separate service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Very modern at the moment.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, because building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, loads of money must be spent too. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on a single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate a custom website hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Cloud4Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
