What Exactly is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of top-notch servers. Each individual service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no enactments at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, lots of money must be invested too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one web server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom web hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised Control Panels besides us, at Webbi.host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
