Cloud Hosting Explanation
In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of avant-garde web servers. Each single service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular at present.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these respective single-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting CP that will function perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting platforms with in-house built CPs besides us, at Baptist Church Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
