Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves different hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of leading edge servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on a single server only. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must build a custom web hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Greenolive Hosting Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
