Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of very advanced servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern these days.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, plenty of money must be invested too. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on a single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these specific one-server hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at iDenver Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
