What Does Cloud Hosting Signify?
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves various website hosting services like storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of cutting-edge servers. Each single service group constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting deceit. Quite common today.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today's popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Real Tech Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
