Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very advanced servers. Each specific service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real 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 statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is why the hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will run perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Lord Griffin IT Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
