Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of avant-garde servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting scam. Quite widespread now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web servers must be bought. 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 problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to invent an in-house built web hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud website hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at ARK SERVERS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
