How does cpanel-based hosting function?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on today's web page hosting market are furnished by a very inconsiderable business segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-scale business niche, which provides an enormous quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying literally the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the webspace hosting offerings on the entire site hosting marketplace supply exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "web hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely branded

The hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web page hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely a regular bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site development procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and online portals . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web space hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web page hosting service providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique web space hosting brands all over the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the diversity on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably met all web hosting business prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Side No.1: An idiotic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very watchful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to erase on the web hosting server, because they all are created 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 placed 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. Verify for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

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

Are you getting perplexed? We unquestionably are!

Negative Sign Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder arrangement on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly increase their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to screw things up too seriously.

Weakness Number Three: A complete shortage of domain management interfaces

Do we have to point out the complete shortage of a modern domain management menu - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois information, secure the Whois details, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a gigantic shortcoming. An unforgivable one, we want to point out...

Negative Side No.4: Numerous login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to access the invoicing, domain and tech support administration software platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based webspace hosting provider. At times, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (especially tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting distributor is using, the earnest customers can wind up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration interface; 2: the ticket support software solution), winding up with a total of three login places (counting cPanel).

Weakness Number Five: More than 120 web site hosting CP sections to memorize... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 menus inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting service providers:

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