Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves separate web hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual hosts of cutting-edge servers. Each individual service group generates 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 function as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail 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, and so on. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular today.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. That is why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to devise a custom website hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Social Stream ME, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
