How does cpanel web site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on the current site hosting marketplace are supplied by a very inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a kind of a small-sized marketing segment, which furnishes a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet supplying literally the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the whole website hosting marketplace furnish one and the very same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel site hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other site hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

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

The website hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only a normal bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site making procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and web sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, now there are more than 200k web page hosting distributors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique hosting brand names around the world will offer you the very same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the present web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly satisfied all web space hosting industry demands. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Inconvenience Number 1: A laughable domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra cautious not to erase 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). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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 name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 growing confused? We doubtlessly are!

Negative Sign Number 2: The same electronic mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Negative Sign Number 3: A thorough absence of domain name management sections

Do we have to point out the absolute lack of a contemporary domain management user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois information, protect the Whois information, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a colossal weakness. An unpardonable one, we want to point out...

Weakness Number 4: Many user login locations (min two, max three)

What about the demand for an extra login to utilize the billing, domain and tech support administration platform? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based hosting vendor. At times, based on the invoice transaction platform (especially tailored for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting vendor is using, the eager customers can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain management GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: More than 120 site hosting CP areas to get familiar with... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them quickly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting providers:

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