Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves different web hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of leading edge web servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting trick. Quite popular at present.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, plenty of money must be invested too. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must invent a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Good examples of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hitpresence Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
