Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves different website hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different stacks of cutting-edge servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud hosting trick. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling institution. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one web server only. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting platforms with in-house built hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
