Definition of Cloud Web Hosting
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of leading edge servers. Each individual service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting trick. Very modern today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the web hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, loads of money has to be invested as well. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud website hosting systems with in-house invented hosting CPs besides us, at Wpsector, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
