What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different hosts of leading edge servers. Each different service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting trick. Very modern at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, loads of money must be invested as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one single server only. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable examples of in-house created cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at TRANSHOST, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
