Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of very powerful web servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web 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 web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Very common these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the website hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, many hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based hosting CPs

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good examples of custom built cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at JB1 Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
