What Indeed is Cloud Website Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves different website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread now.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on a single server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built website hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good instances of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed CPs besides us, at kAsTech Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
