What Does Cloud Hosting Represent?
Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of top-quality web servers. Each specific service set forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common at present.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud hosting system at hand, since fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate instances of custom invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured Control Panels besides us, at Clear Water Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
