Cloud Hosting Explanation
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various website hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate groups of very advanced web servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented hosting Control Panels besides us, at 720Hosting.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
