What Does Cloud Website Hosting Represent?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of deluxe web servers. Each specific service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting swindle. Very common these days.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. This is why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom invented cloud website hosting solutions with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at Krstic Galaxy Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
