Cloud Hosting Unveiled
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent sets of leading edge web servers. Each different service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common today.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must build a custom hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at EzyWeb Hosting Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
