Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of high-end web servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based Control Panels

Modern website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you have to establish a custom web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at Host705, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
