What Exactly is Cloud Website Hosting?
Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of very advanced web servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting hoax. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, loads of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. Plus, 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 website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to run on a single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must set up an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate examples of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at lumenhost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
