How Cloud Website Hosting Operates
Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves different hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual packs of top-notch web servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud hosting deceit. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the web hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on one single web server only. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source CPs
So, you have to build a custom web hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting solutions with custom set up website hosting CPs besides us, at Host Volcano, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
