What is Cloud Website Hosting?
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of top-quality web servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular these days.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud hosting system at hand, since inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent as well. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud website hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at PIXELSPECK, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
