What Does Cloud Website Hosting Denote?
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of high-end servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP 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 different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting hoax. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. That is why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web servers have to be acquired. 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 very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, a lot of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of custom developed cloud web hosting systems with custom built Control Panels besides us, at Somali Hosting LTD, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
