Can anybody give me a list of the components needed to start a cloud hosting?
I've read tons of articles about cloud computing on the internet but I am confused with information there and could not clarify which I need to know. Anyone gives you a list what I will need!

At first it will be the instant deployment. The main purpose of cloud hosting is the ability to scale quickly resources using virtual servers.
You can talk about "cloud" hosting if you can deploy as much as you want server in few minutes, and stop them an hour later.

For example digitalOcean, Vultr, Linode, Scaleway provide cloud hosting servers.

The main components of any Cloud Hosting system are:
a) Clustered infrastructure that features redundancy on the processing servers and for the storage (usually a Storage Area Network)
b) Cloud-ready virtualization platform, which automates the cloud computing system and work on top of the whole cluster, not on top of a single physical instance
c) Any form of Load-baancing service (hardware or software)

Any other functionality is very important, but not a must.

So what exactly are you trying to do start your own cloud hosting company or just resell "cloud" services? Depending on the answer to my question I'm sure I can point you in the correct direction considering 4 years ago I was asking myself this same question and got my answer through trial and error and a lot of wasted money.

Honestly since asked this question, i have many questions to ask because cloud hosting is so new to me.
for examples
What is cloud hosting?
What does cloud hosting include and how does it different from others (Shared, vps, dedicated servers..etc)?
When should I choose cloud hosting?
Does cloud hosting have advantages over other kind of web hosting services?
What is the pricing model and cost?
What security controls are in cloud hosting?
What capabilities does it provide?

and much more...

Cloud Hosting is basically redundancy its data being spread over multiple machines that act as one. With a dedicated server or vps everything is based off one machine.

Cloud Hosting basically offers the ability for client to control there data, power off vps when needed just a load of stuff you can google it to see more.

You should choose cloud hosting whenever you are running anything mainline production because you always want redundancy and security.

The pricing for cloud hosting usually runs $10 per GB of DDR4 RAM either you can price it by that or by the storage SSD or SATA it just depends on your business plan most cloud providers base it on ram and a few other things of course.

When I was an engineer for a cloud hosting company we used Proxmox by ModulesGarden to run out clour platform its pretty easy to use and has everything you need.

The capabilities are endless it just depends on where you want to start and what mission you want to accomplish. Give me a bit more information and I can help you out a bit more.

Components in a cloud refer to the platforms, like the front end, back end and cloud-based delivery and the network that used. All together forms an architecture for cloud computing. With the main components like SAAS, PAAS and IAAS
