In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of high-end servers. Each separate service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The mammoth cloud hosting fraud. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to establish one. In-house. Secondly, you have to build the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must invent an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at DataExtend Hosting Service, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
