How Does Cloud Hosting Operate?
In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of top-quality servers. Each particular service set produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting hoax. Very popular now.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money must be invested too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on a single web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source hosting CPs
So, you must build an in-house built web hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper instances of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised website hosting CPs besides us, at Big Data HOST IT, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
