In general, the real cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of top-quality servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the web 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 approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting swindle. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source CP GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must invent a custom web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with custom invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
