Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting hoax. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, a lot of money must be spent as well. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source CP user interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on a single server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Bohohosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
