In general, the real cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of deluxe servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting system.

The colossal cloud hosting trick. Quite common now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to devise the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on a single server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given single-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to construct an in-house built CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house made cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at Zonk Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
