Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of top-notch servers. Each separate service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting deceit. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. That is why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one web server only. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you must invent an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of custom built cloud web hosting solutions with custom set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Kiaran IT Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
