Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of deluxe web servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting swindle. Very widespread these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the website hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested as well. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house built cloud web hosting platforms with custom manufactured CPs besides us, at Flash Code Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates

The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
