Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of deluxe web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The immense cloud web hosting swindle. Quite common these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing body. That is why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent too. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must make the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to create a custom web hosting CP that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house manufactured hosting Control Panels besides us, at Name Is On, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
