Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of top-quality servers. Each single service group generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud hosting scam. Very widespread today.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting platforms with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at MTBN.NET, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
