How Cloud Website Hosting Works
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of top-quality servers. Each single service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at present.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on a single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must build a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at YTS Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
