How Cloud Hosting Functions
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of top-notch web servers. Each different service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The massive cloud website hosting deceit. Very common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting corporations" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. This is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source Control Panels
So, you must develop a custom website hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of custom invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house built website hosting CPs besides us, at Roamcellsolutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
