Cloud Web Hosting Definition
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of avant-garde servers. Each different service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting swindle. Very modern now.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. This is why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on a single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these particular one-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to create an in-house built Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Cloud Host Shop, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
