Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of avant-garde servers. Each different service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The immense cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread these days.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, many web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must create an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with custom set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Valicom Net Ltd, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
