Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of top-notch web servers. Each single service set produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting deceit. Quite common these days.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must make a custom Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable examples of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with custom devised CPs besides us, at Magnolia Sweets Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The smallest investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
