What Exactly is Cloud Website Hosting?
Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of leading edge web servers. Each individual service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic 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 hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.
The absence of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on one single web server solely. All hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these particular one-server hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Murray Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
