Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves various web hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual packs of deluxe servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern at present.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. This is why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, since inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, lots of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments

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

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given single-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Zoutsos Web Hosting and DNS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
