Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves separate web hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of avant-garde web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same 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 statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The great cloud web hosting hoax. Very modern now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent too. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these given single-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to develop a custom web hosting CP that will function uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud website hosting platforms with custom manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Garden State Business Center, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

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