What Exactly is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of avant-garde servers. Each individual service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure 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 business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting systems with custom made web hosting CPs besides us, at Azvasa.Net, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
