What is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of very powerful web servers. Each individual service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting fraud. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, many hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash must be invested too. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting CP too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to invent an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house manufactured cloud hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at 1Dur Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
