Cloud Hosting Revealed
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of deluxe web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email 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, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular nowadays.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be invested too. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one server solely. All hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built CP that will work faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at East Texas Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
