How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?
Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves individual hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of top-notch web servers. Each single service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. This is why the hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, loads of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one single server solely. All hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to devise an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper instances of in-house built cloud hosting platforms with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at ISACT WEB HOST, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
