Explanation of Cloud Hosting
Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of top-quality servers. Each individual service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting deceit. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based hosting merchant has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to devise a custom website hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting solutions with custom built hosting CPs besides us, at Sreda s.r.o., are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
