In general, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very powerful servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting fraud. Very common nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must create a custom Control Panel that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at HotDogJoe, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

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