How Cloud Web Hosting Operates
In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of high-end web servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting deceit. Quite widespread these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. That is why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must develop a custom website hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of in-house built cloud website hosting systems with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at Fast Tuna Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars 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 stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
