Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of leading edge servers. Each different service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting trick. Quite common today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent too. Mountains of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one single web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud website hosting platforms with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at TNG Web Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
