Cloud Website Hosting Unveiled
Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate sets of avant-garde servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting trick. Very popular at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Garden State Business Center, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision costs
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
