In general, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of cutting-edge servers. Each single service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting trick. Quite common now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting business there are no principles at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested as well. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on a single server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to build a custom web hosting CP that will work impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured Control Panels besides us, at Blue Domain Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
