In case you have already bought a cloud website hosting account from another provider prior to now, you've almost certainly encountered a situation where you must wait around for hours, often even for a couple of days to have your new account set up and activated. The process is usually automated, however with the vast majority of payment systems a new transaction goes in the queue and is executed when a live person sees it. With little website hosting companies, this may happen once a day at a certain time and if you have obtained an account via a reseller before, you have probably waited for quite some time. This way you lose time in waiting as opposed to spending it on dealing with your websites.
