How Does Cloud Web Hosting Operate?
Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual hosts of very advanced servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular now.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, lots of money must be invested too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source Control Panels
So, you must invent a custom web hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of in-house invented cloud website hosting systems with custom set up CPs besides us, at Hepsia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
