In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different packs of leading edge servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a data 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, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting deceit. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting firm has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel tools (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on one single web server solely. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must build a custom hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Host Volcano, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
