In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of deluxe web servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is why the hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, many hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash must be invested too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based hosting Control Panels

Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must create a custom hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable instances of custom created cloud web hosting systems with custom devised hosting CPs besides us, at PriceToHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
