Cloud Hosting Description
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate sets of deluxe servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting deceit. Very modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative institution. That is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent too. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the website hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on a single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at SSDHOSTING, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
