In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves individual web hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different hosts of deluxe web servers. Each specific service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on a single web server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting systems with custom devised Control Panels besides us, at Burningrocks Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
