In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source CP instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting solutions with in-house set up web hosting CPs besides us, at Su Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
