What Does Cloud Web Hosting Denote?
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different groups of high-end servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting trick. Quite widespread now.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must construct a custom website hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate examples of custom set up cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at DomainOffices.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
