Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves different web hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous groups of top-notch servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email 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 separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.

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

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, a lot of cash must be invested too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source CP devices (operating with the cloud hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to fabricate the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on a single server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to invent an in-house built web hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house set up cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at MYWEBS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
