What Does Cloud Website Hosting Denote?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different packs of high-end servers. Each individual service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud website hosting deceit. Very popular at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is why the hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, loads of money must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based CPs
Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source CPs
So, you have to develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at cloud7, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses
The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
