Essentially, the real cloud website hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on different packs of very powerful servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website 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 website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting scam. Very common nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the website hosting companies speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, plenty of money must be invested too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given one-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper examples of custom invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house set up website hosting CPs besides us, at CARTAHOST.COM Web services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
