How Cloud Website Hosting Works
Actually, the real cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting swindle. Quite common now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is intensely 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 web hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the web hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of money must be spent too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on a single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at wedeyhost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
