Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent bunches of deluxe servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting trick. Quite common nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based Control Panels

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these respective single-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable instances of custom devised cloud hosting solutions with custom built hosting Control Panels besides us, at CIS Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
