What Precisely is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of very powerful servers. Each particular service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, loads of money must be invested too. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to construct a custom web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable examples of custom built cloud website hosting systems with custom set up CPs besides us, at RatRod Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
