Cloud Website Hosting Definition
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves individual web hosting services
such as data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of top-notch web servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting
service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting scam. Quite popular these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain
industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting
traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting
merchant has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based CPs
Contemporary CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one single web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house made cloud hosting solutions with in-house made web hosting CPs besides us, at Hostinger, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
