In general, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of top-quality web servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting hoax. Quite modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to function on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Proper instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house created Control Panels besides us, at Value Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
