In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of leading edge web servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud hosting system.

The huge cloud hosting fraud. Very widespread at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based Control Panels

Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one web server solely. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source CPs

So, you have to devise a custom web hosting CP that will function uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom created cloud website hosting platforms with in-house created Control Panels besides us, at K-Hosting Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
