Actually, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of very advanced web servers. Each different service group produces 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 web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting trick. Quite widespread these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. This is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of in-house made cloud web hosting platforms with custom set up website hosting CPs besides us, at Interweb Machine, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
