In general, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of deluxe servers. Each particular service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting swindle. Quite common these days.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish an in-house built Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate examples of custom invented cloud website hosting platforms with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Web Hosting and Servers, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
