Cloud Hosting Uncovered
Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting deceit. Quite widespread today.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house constructed cloud hosting platforms with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Nickam Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
