What In Fact is Cloud Website Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of leading edge web servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Quite modern now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, loads of cash must be spent too. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on a single web server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must set up a custom hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud website hosting systems with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at All Your Hosting Needs, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
