Cloud Website Hosting Unveiled
In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves different web hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of very advanced servers. Each specific service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email 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, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is why the hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, a lot of money must be spent too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the web hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to establish an in-house built Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting Domain, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
