Cloud Web Hosting Definition
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of high-end web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Quite widespread now.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud website hosting solutions with in-house built CPs besides us, at DigiPlots, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees
The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
