How Does Cloud Hosting Operate?
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves different website hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of leading edge web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting hoax. Very common nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is why the web hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to make a custom web hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting CPs besides us, at iDenver Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
