Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of top-notch servers. Each specific service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should 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 Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the hosting companies speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to fabricate the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific one-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at www.DedicatedHostingWeb.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The smallest investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
