Cloud Hosting Description
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of very powerful web servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud website hosting trick. Quite common today.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is the reason why the hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting providers
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source CP user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source Control Panels
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom developed cloud web hosting platforms with custom devised hosting Control Panels besides us, at Tugoats, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. 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 azure... and virtually unclouded!
