How does cpanel-based web site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web space hosting offerings on the current website hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite unsubstantial business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-sized business niche, which generates an enormous quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying absolutely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the webspace hosting offers on the entire site hosting market provide literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other webspace hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200k "site hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The web space hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only an average guy who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and online portals . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any webspace hosting option you can pick? Of course there is, at present there are more than 200,000 web site hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different hosting brands around the world will offer you the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on the present web site hosting market is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied all web hosting business 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...

Predicament Number One: A ludicrous domain folder structure

If you have two or more domains, however, be ultra watchful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

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

Are you becoming baffled? We positively are!

Drawback Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder setup

The e-mail folder structure 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 faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to screw things up too severely.

Weak Point Number Three: An entire shortage of domain name management menus

Do we need to mention the sheer absence of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a vast shortcoming. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Inconvenience Number Four: Numerous user login locations (min 2, max three)

How about the necessity for another login to access the invoice transaction, domain and tech support administration GUI? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel site hosting distributor. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (particularly made for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is utilizing, the eager clients can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management GUI; 2: the ticket support software platform), winding up with a total of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty CP departments to get familiar with... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the CP. It's a wonderful idea to get familiar with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them swiftly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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