Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual sets of top-notch servers. Each different service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting hoax. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising body. This is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on a single web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at - Professional Hosting and eMail Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision rates

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
