How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on the contemporary site hosting market are supplied by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web site hosting is a type of a small-size business segment, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offers on the entire web site hosting marketplace supply one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other site hosting platform/site hosting CP option. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "web site hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The webspace hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a regular fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site development processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and sites . Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different site hosting brands in the world will offer you the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present-day web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly met all web site hosting industry prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side No.1: A ludicrous domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely attentive not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)
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 growing bewildered? We clearly are!

Problem No.2: The same email folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly reinforce their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Inconvenience No.3: A complete deficiency of domain name administration menus

Do we have to point out the absolute shortage of a modern domain name administration tool - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois details, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a vast predicament. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Downside No.4: Numerous login places (min two, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to utilize the billing, domain and technical support administration menu? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel site hosting service provider. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing tool (particularly intended for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting supplier is utilizing, the ardent customers can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the ticket support section), ending up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel menus to grasp... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's very impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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