Cloud Web Hosting Explanation
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of leading edge servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic 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 web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, lots of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting CP devices (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable examples of in-house manufactured cloud hosting solutions with custom developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hepsia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
