Cloud Website Hosting Explanation
In general, the actual cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of very advanced web servers. Each different service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular at the moment.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud hosting system at hand, since inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, plenty of money must be invested too. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must create a custom web hosting CP that will work perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Good instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at MEGAHOST, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
