What Does Cloud Website Hosting Denote?
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of avant-garde web servers. Each different service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting scam. Quite popular at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. That is the reason why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, numerous hosting servers have to be secured. 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 complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent as well. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web hosting CP too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and CPs are installed.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Enterprise Technology, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
