What In Fact is Cloud Website Hosting?
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on different bunches of cutting-edge web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting fraud. Very common these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent too. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one single server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of custom invented cloud hosting systems with in-house constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Linux Hosts Inc., are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
