Cloud Website Hosting Description
In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of top-quality web servers. Each separate service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting hoax. Very modern nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based CPs
Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to establish a custom CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting systems with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at NinjiHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
