Cloud Web Hosting Description
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual packs of very powerful servers. Each single service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. That is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to build an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Cyberdyne Communications Inc, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
