What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves different hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate stacks of avant-garde servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Blue Point Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
