Cloud Web Hosting Description
In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of money must be spent too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one server exclusively. All hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these specific single-server hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct a custom website hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at Best Business Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
