In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of cutting-edge servers. Each individual service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting fraud. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with custom created hosting CPs besides us, at EMax Web Hosting Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
