How Cloud Website Hosting Works
Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of top-notch web servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting swindle. Very popular at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, multiple hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, since creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent too. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must develop a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at wild-hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
