Description of Cloud Web Hosting
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of top-quality web servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website 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 stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting system.

The substantial cloud website hosting fraud. Very common these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to devise a custom website hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at DNA SuperHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
