How Does Cloud Hosting Work?
Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of avant-garde web servers. Each different service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Very common at the moment.
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 reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be invested too. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on a single server only. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to develop an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with in-house developed website hosting CPs besides us, at The Host Office, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
