How Does Cloud Hosting Operate?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting scam. Quite popular today.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. That is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably 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" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a predicament, lots of money must be invested too. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house built cloud hosting systems with custom built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Host Cape, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
