Cloud Web Hosting Definition
In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of deluxe web servers. Each individual service set forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, loads of money has to be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom CP that will run unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting platforms with custom built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hepsia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
