Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual packs of leading edge web servers. Each different service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting deceit. Quite popular at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent too. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

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

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom web hosting CP that will function impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed Control Panels besides us, at LUFDY, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
