Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of top-notch web servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting fraud. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, loads of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments

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

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to invent a custom website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with custom set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
