Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP 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 create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound 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 widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, lots of money has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source CPs

So, you must set up a custom website hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house built cloud website hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at SSDHOSTING, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
