In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of very advanced web servers. Each different service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting trick. Very popular today.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, as inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these particular single-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you must fabricate an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house set up cloud hosting platforms with in-house set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at SupernovaHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
