In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of very advanced servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based CPs

Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one single server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise a custom website hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom devised cloud hosting systems with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at SPV Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
