Cloud Website Hosting Definition
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of leading edge web servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web 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 stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is why the website hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, a lot of cash must be invested too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of in-house made cloud web hosting platforms with custom invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Woncloud Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 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 platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
