How Cloud Website Hosting Operates
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate stacks of very advanced servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space 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, etc. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting scam. Very common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom made cloud hosting platforms with custom created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at I Like Myhost- Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
