In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves various web hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of avant-garde servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting deceit. Very popular today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative body. That is why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the CP as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate an in-house built web hosting CP that will run impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper examples of in-house constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built website hosting CPs besides us, at BigHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum investment demanded, only 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. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
