Cloud Web Hosting Explained
Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual packs of very powerful servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must build a custom website hosting CP that will work impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting platforms with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at BBP Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
