Description of Cloud Website Hosting
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of leading edge web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting hoax. Very common at the moment.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific single-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hepsia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
