Explanation of Cloud Hosting
In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of very powerful web servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web hosting CP too.
One server-based Control Panels
Popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective one-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Registrar 4 us, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
