What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?
Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of avant-garde servers. Each separate service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to construct a custom web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Digital Steer Web Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
