Cloud Hosting Revealed
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of avant-garde web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting hoax. Quite widespread today.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, many web servers have to 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 find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these given one-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom web hosting CP that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good instances of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at CP Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
