How does cpanel-based site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the present hosting market are generated by a quite insubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which provides an immense number of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying strictly the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the site hosting offers on the whole website hosting market offer literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting price tags are identical. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/hosting CP choice. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200k "web space hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The web site hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different webspace hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website creation processes and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web site hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting firms in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique web page hosting brands all over the world will give you exactly the same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the present web page hosting marketplace is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a great strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied all web page hosting industry prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number 1: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to remove on the server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting nonplussed? We definitely are!

Weak Point Number Two: The same e-mail folder structure

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin guys strongly enhance their belief in God when coping with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to bungle things up too harshly.

Shortcoming Number 3: An entire absence of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we have to bring up the complete shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's an enormous shortcoming. An unpardonable one, we want to point out...

Inconvenience Number Four: Numerous user login places (min two, max 3)

What about the need for an additional login to utilize the billing, domain name and tech support administration system? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel site hosting vendor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (especially created for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the earnest clients can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with a total of three login places (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel areas to get to know... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ sections inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them briskly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting providers:

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