How Does Cloud Hosting Work?
In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of high-end web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email 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 autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting hoax. Very common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.
The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom invented cloud hosting solutions with custom developed Control Panels besides us, at 1onlinehost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
