Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of very advanced web servers. Each particular service set forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud hosting scam. Very popular at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper examples of in-house developed cloud website hosting platforms with custom constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
