Cloud Web Hosting Revealed
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous groups of high-end web servers. Each specific service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud web hosting deceit. Very common nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent too. Mountains of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must make an in-house built web hosting CP that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at JB1 Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
