What In Fact is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of cutting-edge servers. Each different service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the website hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one web server only. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house set up website hosting CPs besides us, at RCS-Tek Cloud Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
