How Cloud Hosting Functions
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of very advanced servers. Each particular service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting trick. Quite modern nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is why the website hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must fabricate an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at Jeannie In Digital Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
