Description of Cloud Hosting
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of leading edge servers. Each particular service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting deceit. Quite modern nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative organization. That is why the website hosting traders speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific one-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom hosting CP that will work impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud website hosting solutions with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at SOS Web Development, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
