Cloud Web Hosting Definition
Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of high-end web servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting swindle. Very widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, many web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source CP instruments (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these respective single-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must create an in-house built hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good examples of custom developed cloud web hosting systems with custom built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at W WebHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
