What Does Cloud Hosting Denote?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate web hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of top-notch web servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread today.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is why the hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, loads of cash must be spent too. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised Control Panels besides us, at myhypercloud.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
