In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of very advanced servers. Each single service group creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Very modern these days.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the web hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given one-server hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house created website hosting CPs besides us, at Website Pro Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
