How Cloud Web Hosting Works
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of top-notch web servers. Each different service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting fraud. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, loads of money must be invested too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up an in-house built hosting CP that will function perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at ENSR.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
