Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of avant-garde web servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk 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 autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great cloud hosting hoax. Quite widespread today.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. This is why the web hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be invested too. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the CP too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to function on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house made cloud hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting CPs besides us, at Wise Host Network, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal contribution wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
