Nope, a Cloud hosting it is an empty space that you can set as you want, like if you have a web server at home into your own PC. It is on your own to set-up the kind of server you want to have or use the facilities offered there, there are free ones and not.
I.e.: I want a server based on linux with Cpanel? Yes I can.
You decide what kind of server you get, PHP version/s you want there, DB, CGI.. and so on.
You are the ruler (the hoster of yourself) there, beetwen the limits of your cloud (droplet) .. 5gb, 10gb... and so on. All of this means you MUST have the necessary knowledge on how to set up a server.
As an example, the digitalocean DOT com
[ it is one the more cheap and advanced Clouds over there IMHO.
I am not spamming nothing here since I am not in any way affiliated, but I for sure I will get there in the next future if my actual host will not solves it's own server configurations as soon as possible.
I paid a domain name and still waiting to get that host working.
