In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on separate bunches of top-quality web servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular now.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. This is why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based hosting CPs

Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate an in-house built web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting systems with custom devised website hosting CPs besides us, at Foxsch Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
