Cloud Web Hosting Definition
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of top-notch web servers. Each single service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic 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 beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting scam. Very popular now.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Modern web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed Control Panels besides us, at Host2net LLC, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
