Actually, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves various website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of top-quality web servers. Each different service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud hosting deceit. Very widespread these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one single web server solely. All hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of in-house built cloud web hosting systems with custom devised website hosting CPs besides us, at Top Hosting Provider, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
