Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different packs of top-notch servers. Each particular service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting hoax. Very modern at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the website hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised CPs besides us, at CableHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
