What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very powerful servers. Each particular service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Quite widespread these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. This is why the web hosting traders speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud hosting systems with custom invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Depzo, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
