In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual stacks of very powerful servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting hoax. Very widespread now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent too. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

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

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Contemporary CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source hosting CPs

So, you must make a custom Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good instances of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at eBD Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
