Actually, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of cutting-edge servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting hoax. Very modern at present.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, lots of servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at DEMKADA, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
