In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of very powerful servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to make a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom set up website hosting CPs besides us, at The Gulf Web Hosting Group Ltd., are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
