What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of top-notch web servers. Each different service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage 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 independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting hoax. Very popular now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based Control Panels
Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you must build a custom web hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Host54, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
