Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of leading edge web servers. Each separate service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting swindle. Very common nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the website hosting CP too.

One server-based hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate a custom Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
