In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very powerful web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting scam. Very common these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash must be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on a single server solely. All hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud website hosting platforms with custom developed website hosting CPs besides us, at Premium Hosting Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
