Cloud Web Hosting Description
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of very advanced servers. Each specific service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting hoax. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. That is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will run perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting CPs besides us, at 4CEE Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
