Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of very powerful servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage 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, etc. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting fraud. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative institution. That is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, a lot of money has to be invested too. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must develop a custom website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Platinum Web Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
