How does cpanel-based site hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based site hosting offers on the current website hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size business niche, which supplies an enormous quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing the very same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web space hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace furnish literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

200,000 "webspace hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web site hosting "variety" and the hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are just an average fellow who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the site making procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any site hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brand names in the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel web site hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the present hosting market is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a mammoth stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps met all site hosting market preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness Number One: A dumb domain name folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting perplexed? We surely are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The same e-mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly enhance their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to fuck things up too gravely.

Negative Point No.3: A thorough shortage of domain name manipulation tools

Do we need to cite the absolute shortage of a modern domain name management menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, change domains' Whois info, protect the Whois details, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" section at all. That's a big downside. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Inconvenience Number Four: Multiple user login places (min 2, maximum three)

What about the need for an additional login to utilize the invoicing, domain name and tech support management interface? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web space hosting supplier. At times, depending on the invoice transaction tool (principally created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting distributor is making use of, the ardent customers can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain management software; 2: the ticket support software platform), winding up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Downside Number Five: More than 120 site hosting CP menus to get acquainted with... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based webspace hosting service providers:

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one too...
