Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual groups of deluxe servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is because in the hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. 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 very improbable for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper examples of custom built cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at Mnistrat Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
