In general, the real cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of cutting-edge web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting hoax. Quite popular these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must invent a custom website hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at TronINDEX, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
