Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of top-notch web servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space 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, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The immense cloud hosting trick. Very common now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the hosting business there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to invent an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house built cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created hosting CPs besides us, at MatPhillip, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
