Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves various web hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different stacks of top-notch servers. Each separate service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. That is why the hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, plenty of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate instances of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with custom built website hosting CPs besides us, at My Web Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
