What Does Cloud Hosting Signify?
In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different packs of top-quality servers. Each individual service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting trick. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervising institution. That is why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, a lot of money has to be invested too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at PN Scripts, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
