In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of top-notch web servers. Each particular service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will build the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting fraud. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be invested too. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must create a custom hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting solutions with custom created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Genius Cloud Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
