What is Cloud Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different sets of deluxe web servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to 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 CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. This is why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, lots of money must be spent too. Mountains of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source CP tools (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the website hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house made cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed website hosting CPs besides us, at MEDHA4U.COM, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
