Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of top-notch web servers. Each particular service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting swindle. Very common at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting business there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

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

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud hosting systems with custom created CPs besides us, at Domain Control Network, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
