Cloud Website Hosting Unmasked
Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of very advanced servers. Each single service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud website hosting fraud. Quite modern nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative body. This is why the web hosting distributors speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at BrentHost 'www.brenthost.com', are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
