Cloud Hosting Explanation
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different hosts of deluxe servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic 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, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting swindle. Very common today.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. 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 merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. This is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to devise the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one web server only. All hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to develop an in-house built hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Reseller b2b hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
