What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different web hosting services such as storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of deluxe web servers. Each separate service group produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread now.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, a lot of money must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these given one-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom web hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house made cloud hosting solutions with custom set up website hosting CPs besides us, at 7GreatMedia Hosting Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
