In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves different web hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of top-quality web servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting trick. Very common these days.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing body. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these respective one-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must construct a custom website hosting CP that will work perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good examples of custom built cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at CIS Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
