Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent groups of very advanced web servers. Each different service pack constitutes 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 perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting trick. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. This is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the CP as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to create an in-house built website hosting CP that will run perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Zackdesignz Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
