Cloud Web Hosting Description
Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different packs of leading edge servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a 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 different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting deceit. Quite common today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed website hosting CPs besides us, at Hostwaysolutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
