Cloud Website Hosting Disclosed
Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual sets of avant-garde servers. Each individual service set forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative institution. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house set up Control Panels besides us, at AgoHosting.Net, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
