Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very advanced servers. Each separate service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical 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, etc. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting swindle. Very widespread today.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to build the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based Control Panels

Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on a single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must create a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at WebServer247, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
