What is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of high-end servers. Each specific service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common now.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. That is why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent too. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable examples of custom created cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at jamPACKED HOSTiNG, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
