Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very advanced web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting deceit. Very popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be spent too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with custom made hosting CPs besides us, at Shirinyan Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
