Definition of Cloud Web Hosting
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves various website hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of leading edge web servers. Each particular service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting scam. Quite popular today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is the reason why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, lots of money must be invested too. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Famous CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of custom invented cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at DDD Web Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
