Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of avant-garde servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting trick. Quite modern now.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. That is the reason why the hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based hosting CPs

Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at WANTOK Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
