In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of very advanced servers. Each individual service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud hosting hoax. Very modern nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative institution. That is why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, loads of money has to be spent too. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based CPs

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must invent a custom website hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at eZeDomain.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
