Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of high-end web servers. Each specific service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting hoax. Quite popular these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on a single server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must build a custom hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house built cloud web hosting platforms with custom built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at AX Cloud, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
