Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different packs of top-quality web servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud website hosting trick. Quite modern nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing body. That is why the website hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, many web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent as well. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the CP as well.

One server-based Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to construct a custom CP that will perform flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting systems with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Ace Hosts, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
