In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of deluxe servers. Each separate service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash must be invested too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the website hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house set up Control Panels besides us, at Professional Web Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
