Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of top-quality servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting trick. Quite widespread these days.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one single server only. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you must build an in-house built web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of in-house developed cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at DwellingHost.net, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
