Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of leading edge web servers. Each specific service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP 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 make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting fraud. Quite modern these days.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative institution. That is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting providers

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Modern Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must establish an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house invented hosting Control Panels besides us, at iNet Africa, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
