Cloud Website Hosting Explanation
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent stacks of high-end web servers. Each different service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud hosting deceit. Quite widespread now.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. That is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source CP GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to invent the hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting CPs besides us, at Malta Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
