What In Fact is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of top-notch web servers. Each specific service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Very common today.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom website hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Website Web Hosting Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
