Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is the reason why the web hosting distributors speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must create an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good examples of in-house constructed cloud hosting solutions with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Host PRN, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
