Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent packs of leading edge servers. Each specific service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based Control Panels

Modern hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these given single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must construct an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud website hosting solutions with in-house created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Best Web Hosting Dubai, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
