Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of very advanced servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud hosting hoax. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on one single server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with in-house created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Debian Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
