How Does Cloud Website Hosting Function?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of high-end servers. Each particular service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is why the hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, due to the fact that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective single-server hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must set up an in-house built CP that will perform impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house constructed cloud hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at YASPE, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
