In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of avant-garde servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Very common these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, lots of money must be spent too. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to devise the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based CPs

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to build a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom made cloud hosting platforms with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Tiger Hosts, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
