How Cloud Web Hosting Works
In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves individual web hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of very advanced servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern nowadays.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting systems with custom created hosting CPs besides us, at Dynamextreme Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
