Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves separate hosting services like data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of top-notch servers. Each separate service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. That is why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, lots of money must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one server only. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must build a custom hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house created hosting Control Panels besides us, at Dynamextreme Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
