Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of top-quality servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting swindle. Quite popular at present.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on a single server exclusively. All hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good examples of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with in-house set up hosting CPs besides us, at Evostrix Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
