Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of very powerful web servers. Each individual service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, loads of money must be spent as well. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on a single server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to devise an in-house built Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Cachaii Inc., are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
