How does cpanel-based website hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on the current hosting market are supplied by a very inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small-size business segment, which supplies an immense quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying the very same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web site hosting offers on the entire website hosting market offer one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other site hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web page hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The website hosting "variety" and the web site hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply an ordinary fellow who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and web sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 webspace hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brands around the world will give you strictly the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably met most site hosting business requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: A moronic domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be very attentive not to delete completely 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 remove on the server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here is located)
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)
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 confused? We doubtlessly are!

Drawback No.2: The very same e-mail folder configuration

The mail folder structure on the server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly reinforce their belief in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too fatally.

Negative Sign No.3: A total deficiency of domain name administration interfaces

Do we have to bring up the complete shortage of a modern domain name administration GUI - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois details, protect the Whois information, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a considerable problem. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Weakness No.4: Numerous login locations (min 2, max three)

What about the necessity for an additional login to access the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support administration software platform? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web space hosting firm. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (especially meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the enthusiastic customers can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: More than 120 web site hosting Control Panel areas to get familiar with... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them fast... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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