What Does Cloud Website Hosting Signify?
Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves different web hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate groups of deluxe servers. Each individual service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting scam. Very popular at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is why the hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, as constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to build a custom website hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable examples of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Solomon Goldman, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
