Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of very powerful web servers. Each specific service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting trick. Quite modern at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, loads of money must be invested as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to devise the website hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Modern hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to function on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source CPs

So, you must set up a custom hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom devised cloud website hosting platforms with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Wholesale Hosting Club, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
