In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk 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 autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting trick. Very modern these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one single server only. All hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you must build a custom Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented Control Panels besides us, at Apt Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
