Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves different hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud hosting trick. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative organization. This is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, loads of money must be invested as well. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to run on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these given single-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to construct an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper examples of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting systems with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
