Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of high-end servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud 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 website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting swindle. Very modern now.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is why the web hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, as developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested too. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house set up cloud hosting platforms with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision rates

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
