How Cloud Hosting Operates
Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of top-notch web servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Very common today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. That is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting providers
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Famous Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must build a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud website hosting systems with custom invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at MarkTel Corporation, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
