In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of high-end servers. Each individual service set makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting fraud. Very common nowadays.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative institution. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on one single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must make an in-house built web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting systems with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at YourPowerHosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
