Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves individual hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of top-notch web servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling institution. That is the reason why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent too. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting Control Panels

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on one single web server only. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must establish an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good examples of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
