What Does Cloud Hosting Represent?
Essentially, the real cloud website hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-notch web servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. That is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, many web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, since fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, lots of money must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to construct an in-house built hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good instances of custom manufactured cloud hosting systems with custom invented website hosting CPs besides us, at Top Hosting Provider, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
