Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves various web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of cutting-edge servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting hoax. Quite widespread these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud website hosting platforms with custom constructed hosting CPs besides us, at GNet Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
