How Cloud Website Hosting Functions
Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of very powerful servers. Each particular service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting trick. Very common now.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. This is the reason why the web hosting distributors speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one single server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source hosting CPs
So, you must establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house created cloud website hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at EziWebb, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
