What Exactly is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of leading edge web servers. Each different service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP 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 independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting hoax. Very common at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. That is why the hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested too. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one server solely. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these given single-server hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at CNSS Solutions AB, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
