Cloud Website Hosting Unveiled
Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual hosts of deluxe web servers. Each different service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting trick. Very modern these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. That is the reason why the hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly 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" hosting traders
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of servers have to 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 explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on a single server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific one-server hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must make an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made website hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting EG, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
