In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of very powerful web servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source Control Panel devices (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given one-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised Control Panels besides us, at Cheap Hosted, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
