Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of leading edge web servers. Each different service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent too. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Modern web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting platforms with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at LongView Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
