What Does Cloud Web Hosting Signify?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate packs of top-quality servers. Each single service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting swindle. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. This is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, loads of money must be spent too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on a single web server only. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house developed cloud hosting systems with custom made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Republik Murah, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
