Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different sets of high-end web servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting swindle. Very widespread now.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big drawback.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

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

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on one server only. All hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these specific one-server hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must set up a custom web hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable examples of custom invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at AX Cloud, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The smallest investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
