In general, the real cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of very powerful web servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting deceit. Quite popular these days.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling institution. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you have to invent a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house created website hosting CPs besides us, at Hostinger, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
