Cloud Web Hosting Definition
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of very powerful servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP 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 separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The great cloud website hosting trick. Very popular today.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, many web servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on a single server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these respective one-server hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud website hosting solutions with custom made web hosting CPs besides us, at Sunset Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
