What is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves different web hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of very advanced servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting trick. Very widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the website hosting traders speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one server only. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must construct an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Proper instances of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with custom developed hosting CPs besides us, at Xephor, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
