What Does Cloud Hosting Stand for?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of high-end web servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting trick. Quite popular now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative organization. This is why the web hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good instances of custom invented cloud hosting systems with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at J D Webcrafters, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
