In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of very advanced web servers. Each particular service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting scam. Very common today.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you have to invent the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop an in-house built CP that will operate flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable examples of in-house devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at 5D Domain's and Hosting VPS Web Developer and Business Service's, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
