Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of top-notch web servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting trick. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must create an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Suitable examples of custom built cloud web hosting platforms with custom made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at SupremePlan.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
