Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate packs of very powerful servers. Each individual service pack creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting hoax. Very popular at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one web server only. All website hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these given single-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud website hosting systems with custom invented website hosting CPs besides us, at Intraden, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
