Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of top-quality servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email 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 autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting swindle. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. This is why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must make a custom hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of in-house constructed cloud hosting platforms with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at Hepsia.Biz (FEGhost), are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
