Essentially, the actual cloud hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of very powerful servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting scam. Very modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is why the website hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good examples of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at Bester Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
