How Cloud Web Hosting Functions
In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of deluxe web servers. Each separate service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud hosting fraud. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. That is why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based Control Panels
Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must build an in-house built Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of custom made cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at e-debugger, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
