How Does Cloud Web Hosting Operate?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of very advanced servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source CP devices (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must construct a custom web hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at MilkyWayHosting.Com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
