Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of leading edge web servers. Each separate service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting deceit. Very common today.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must build an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable examples of in-house constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Enterprise Technology, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
