Actually, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of avant-garde servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting deceit. Very common nowadays.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, a lot of money must be invested as well. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to fabricate the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to develop an in-house built hosting CP that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Delta Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
