What Does Cloud Hosting Represent?
In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves individual website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of deluxe web servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must 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 Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the hosting business there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based hosting CPs
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom developed cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at star24host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
