In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of deluxe servers. Each different service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern now.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative body. This is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one single web server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom set up Control Panels besides us, at RNR Media Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
