Explanation of Cloud Hosting
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of avant-garde servers. Each particular service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a web 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, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, loads of money must be spent too. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must establish a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate instances of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Lizzdmc Productions LLC, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
