In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves individual web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting deceit. Quite modern nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is why the web hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must make one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house manufactured CPs besides us, at Mo Money', are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
