What Actually is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of leading edge servers. Each particular service set forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular today.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must set up a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with custom set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at LCS IT and Media Services Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
