How does cpanel-based hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual money flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small marketing niche, which provides a vast amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web site hosting offers on the entire webspace hosting market furnish exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel site hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web site hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...

200k "web site hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web space hosting "variety" and the web site hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a normal fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can select? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web site hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique site hosting brand names around the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the contemporary website hosting market is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably answered all web page hosting industry prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect No.1: A moronic domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located 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. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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)
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 baffled? We undoubtedly are!

Predicament No.2: The very same mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly fortify their faith in God when managing the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to mess things up too irreparably.

Inconvenience No.3: A total deficiency of domain management options

Do we need to mention the total lack of a modern domain administration interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" section at all. That's a mammoth weakness. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Drawback Number Four: Numerous user login locations (min two, maximum 3)

What about the need for another login to access the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support administration software platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel website hosting firm. At times, based on the billing system (especially intended for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting service provider is utilizing, the devoted clients can end up with two additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain management interface; 2: the ticket support section), ending up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Weak Side No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web site hosting CP sections to grasp... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them promptly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web site hosting distributors:

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