Definition of Cloud Hosting
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of high-end servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no principles at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one web server only. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with custom set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at eBD Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
