How Does Cloud Web Hosting Function?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate hosts of high-end web servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting fraud. Very common these days.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, since establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent too. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent an in-house built web hosting CP that will function uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at WebRunner Domains, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
