Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of top-quality web servers. Each specific service set generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, plenty of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to function on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these specific single-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must create a custom hosting CP that will run perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good examples of custom built cloud web hosting systems with custom devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Omni Brand Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
