What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves separate web hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of very advanced servers. Each separate service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. This is why the website hosting providers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, plenty of money has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these given single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must create a custom website hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Suitable instances of custom invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Mnistrat Hosting uk, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
