Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different web hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very powerful servers. Each separate service group produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web hosting trick. Very popular these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one single server only. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built website hosting CP that will run perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom created cloud website hosting systems with custom set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at City Website Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
