Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of deluxe servers. Each specific service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The mammoth cloud hosting scam. Very popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. This is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one single server only. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Sreda Top, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
