What In Fact is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different website hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of very advanced servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space 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, etc. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud hosting fraud. Quite popular nowadays.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must build a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud web hosting solutions with in-house invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at SIANA HOSTING, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
