How Cloud Website Hosting Works
In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual stacks of top-notch web servers. Each particular service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent too. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one single server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to set up a custom web hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable instances of custom created cloud website hosting platforms with in-house made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Genius Monster Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
