What In Fact is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of high-end servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread now.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. That is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent too. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to build the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based Control Panels
Today's popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one web server only. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these specific single-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source Control Panels
So, you must devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting platforms with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at France Raidlayer, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
