In general, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves separate web hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual sets of deluxe servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud website hosting scam. Very common today.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is why the hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on a single web server solely. All hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must establish a custom website hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud website hosting systems with custom created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at One Host Provider, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
