In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of avant-garde servers. Each particular service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web 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 email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Very popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory body. This is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested as well. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these particular single-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built hosting CPs besides us, at InfiniTech, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
