Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of cutting-edge servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud hosting swindle. Quite modern at present.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. This is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source CP GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one server solely. All hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must create a custom hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Host54, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
