What is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on individual sets of avant-garde servers. Each particular service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to invent the Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these given single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with custom created website hosting CPs besides us, at Design Turtle, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
