Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of cutting-edge servers. Each different service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting business there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is why the hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on a single server only. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these particular single-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom CP that will operate impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom made cloud website hosting solutions with custom made web hosting CPs besides us, at DNA SuperHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
