In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different stacks of deluxe web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular now.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. That is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Modern web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house invented cloud website hosting solutions with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
