Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of leading edge web servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting deceit. Quite common these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, many web servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent as well. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on a single web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate a custom hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud website hosting platforms with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at CIS Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
