How Cloud Hosting Functions

In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of avant-garde servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting deceit. Quite common nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, many servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, lots of cash must be invested too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
