In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very powerful servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud website hosting scam. Very popular today.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is why the hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, plenty of money has to be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the website hosting CP too.

One server-based hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to establish an in-house built CP that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at The Duck Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
