How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?
Actually, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of deluxe web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. That is why the web hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, lots of money must be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one server only. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to invent a custom web hosting CP that will function faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised website hosting CPs besides us, at Socalwebs Domains and Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
