Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate bunches of very powerful servers. Each single service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting scam. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud web hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud website hosting platforms with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
