Explanation of Cloud Website Hosting
Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of very powerful web servers. Each different service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing body. That is why the web hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to invent the hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and CPs are set up.
The absence of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built website hosting CP that will run unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable instances of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with custom invented Control Panels besides us, at Hosting Webs UK, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
