In general, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of avant-garde servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The massive cloud website hosting scam. Quite popular these days.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative body. That is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting firm has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, loads of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting CP that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting platforms with custom built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Blue Ribbon Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
