Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of very powerful servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine 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 stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular today.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, as establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, loads of cash must be spent too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must make the Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to establish an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at MEGAHOST, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
