Actually, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of cutting-edge servers. Each single service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email 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 autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting trick. Very modern at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, loads of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will function uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Suitable instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting platforms with custom invented website hosting CPs besides us, at Openbit.biz - Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
