What In Fact is Cloud Web Hosting?
Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of deluxe servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Very widespread now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent too. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one web server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must develop a custom website hosting CP that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable instances of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with custom built hosting Control Panels besides us, at Zazti, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
