Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of top-quality web servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting deceit. Quite popular these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, loads of cash must be invested too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source CP user interfaces (running with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to invent an in-house built web hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud website hosting platforms with custom made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Fast Cloud Server, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
