What is Cloud Website Hosting?
In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different sets of leading edge web servers. Each specific service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting trick. Quite modern at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent too. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on a single server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent an in-house built website hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with in-house set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hepsia.Co, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
