Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of leading edge servers. Each single service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web 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 stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting swindle. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent too. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Modern website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to build an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom developed cloud web hosting platforms with custom devised CPs besides us, at GoDaddy Chinese Support, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
