Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual hosts of avant-garde servers. Each single service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to run on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Kassis Corp for Design and Marketing, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
