The precise truth about the cloud site hosting solution
In general, the real cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of very powerful servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.
The substantial cloud web hosting deceit. Very modern at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the website hosting traders speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based site hosting distributor has a cloud web space hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, many hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, in that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent too. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web page hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web site hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web space hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular site hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on a single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular one-server web site hosting platforms and web space hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you must set up a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured web site hosting CPs are: TheProHost.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware equipment charges
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
