Essentially, the actual cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of very powerful servers. Each different service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should 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 Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting deceit. Quite modern these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, many servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, loads of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the CP as well.

One server-based Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built CP that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Fast PHP Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
