How Cloud Hosting Operates
Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves various hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of very powerful web servers. Each particular service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting scam. Quite common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.
The facts 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 quite unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must create a custom CP that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at GumnutHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
