How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?
In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of very advanced servers. Each individual service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting trick. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. That is why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the CP too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house set up website hosting CPs besides us, at SupernovaHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
