Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves individual website hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of leading edge web servers. Each specific service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting deceit. Quite popular now.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. That is why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at CIS Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates

The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
