In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent sets of very advanced servers. Each different service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting deceit. Very modern today.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing body. That is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, plenty of money must be invested too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on a single server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting solutions with custom developed website hosting CPs besides us, at Discount Hosting Store, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
