Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different website hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of leading edge servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting swindle. Very common now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. This is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, because devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of money has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper examples of custom devised cloud website hosting platforms with custom created website hosting CPs besides us, at Mad Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
