Cloud Hosting Definition
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of high-end web servers. Each separate service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud website hosting deceit. Quite modern these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, a lot of cash must be invested too. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The absence of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must set up an in-house built Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at OneSource Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
