In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate stacks of top-quality web servers. Each individual service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to invent an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud website hosting systems with in-house created CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
