How Does Cloud Website Hosting Work?
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves various web hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service group produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website 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 statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting deceit. Very popular now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the web hosting CP too.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on one server only. All hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to devise a custom web hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of custom set up cloud hosting systems with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at BootDomain.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
