How Cloud Hosting Functions
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves various website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of top-notch servers. Each single service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting hoax. Very common these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. This is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based CPs
Famous hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you must establish a custom website hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house made cloud web hosting solutions with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at Asia Pacific Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
