What Does Cloud Website Hosting Represent?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of top-quality web servers. Each different service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should 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 website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting scam. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative body. This is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of money must be spent as well. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the web hosting CP too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these given one-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must invent a custom hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Media Kiings, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees
The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
