Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual groups of top-quality servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Very modern these days.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. That is why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested too. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on a single server only. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to build an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper examples of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with custom made web hosting CPs besides us, at eBD Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
