Cloud Web Hosting Description
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of avant-garde web servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at present.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, loads of money must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on a single web server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with custom made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Domaniac, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
