Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of high-end servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting hoax. Quite modern at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable instances of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with custom made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hostaguar, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
