Cloud Hosting Description
Actually, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves separate web hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The massive cloud hosting trick. Quite popular nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting providers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, since fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP tools (running with the cloud hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to establish an in-house built Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with custom made Control Panels besides us, at SmartHostingServices.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
