Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of high-end web servers. Each individual service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same 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 hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting trick. Very modern at present.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. This is the reason why the hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, lots of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on a single web server only. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom website hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at webmotionhosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
