Cloud Website Hosting Definition
In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very advanced web servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. That is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, lots of money must be spent too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct a custom CP that will work impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom created cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Pro Host Z, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
