Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of top-quality servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular at present.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting business there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. This is why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, lots of money must be invested too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to construct a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made hosting CPs besides us, at vortex-hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
