What Does Cloud Web Hosting Mean?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of cutting-edge web servers. Each separate service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an email 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, and so on. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based Control Panels
Today's popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular one-server hosting systems and CPs are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate an in-house built Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of custom developed cloud hosting systems with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at Webgear Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
