In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of avant-garde servers. Each specific service set forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email 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 independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The immense cloud web hosting scam. Quite popular now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, many hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud web hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at iwebclouds Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
