Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual sets of deluxe web servers. Each specific service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting deceit. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is why the hosting distributors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at Innovator Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
