Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different website hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent bunches of cutting-edge servers. Each separate service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage 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, and so on. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great cloud website hosting swindle. Very widespread at present.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, many hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent too. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom CP that will run faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of custom built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Online In Seconds, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
