Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves different website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of very advanced web servers. Each single service group produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting deceit. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. That is why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make a custom hosting CP that will work impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house built cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting Plus de Proyco Corporacion, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
