Explanation of Cloud Hosting
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each individual service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic 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 statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting trick. Quite popular these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, plenty of money must be invested as well. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (working with the cloud hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable instances of in-house built cloud web hosting systems with custom invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at UTB Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
