Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of top-quality servers. Each single service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email 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 separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting trick. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Modern hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one web server only. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given single-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom web hosting CP that will work perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good examples of custom set up cloud website hosting solutions with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at IKU, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
