Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of high-end web servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud hosting fraud. Quite widespread today.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of money must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of custom created cloud web hosting systems with custom made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at AppDome Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
