Actually, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of very advanced web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. 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. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Hepsia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
