What Actually is Cloud Website Hosting?
In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different packs of top-quality servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting swindle. Very popular today.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, a lot of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built website hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of in-house made cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured Control Panels besides us, at Wise Pro Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
