Cloud Hosting Explanation
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of top-notch web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting scam. Very common these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. That is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud website hosting platforms with in-house made Control Panels besides us, at ARK SERVERS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
