What Indeed is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual groups of very advanced servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting deceit. Very modern at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of money must be invested too. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house set up website hosting CPs besides us, at MyTrustyWebhost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
