Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of top-notch web servers. Each different service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage 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, and so on. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting trick. Very popular at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one web server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud website hosting systems with in-house made website hosting CPs besides us, at Obour Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
