Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves various hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of very powerful web servers. Each specific service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting trick. Quite common now.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. This is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of web servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on one server only. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct a custom website hosting CP that will work impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting systems with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at The Host Office, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
