What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of deluxe web servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested too. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Pixalogy Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
