Cloud Web Hosting Definition
In general, the actual cloud hosting platform serves different web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different groups of leading edge servers. Each different service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting hoax. Very common now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the CP as well.
One server-based CPs
Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single server only. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Raza Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
