Cloud Website Hosting Description
Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different hosts of leading edge web servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting deceit. Quite popular at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must invent a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Local Social Mobile Web Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
