How Does Cloud Website Hosting Work?
In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of leading edge servers. Each particular service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting deceit. Very modern now.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, loads of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, plenty of money has to be spent too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to develop a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good examples of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with custom made web hosting CPs besides us, at GoKookyGo Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud website 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 are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
