Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate sets of avant-garde servers. Each specific service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

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

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the website hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, many web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, because making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on a single server solely. All hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Azeer web hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
