What Indeed is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of deluxe web servers. Each different service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is why the hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, lots of money must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel devices (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one single server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to set up a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud web hosting platforms with custom created hosting CPs besides us, at 04 Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
