Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of high-end servers. Each specific service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular today.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, plenty of money has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on a single web server solely. All hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source Control Panels

So, you must make a custom web hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of custom built cloud hosting systems with custom created website hosting CPs besides us, at Nova Webhosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
