How does cpanel-based hosting work?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the current web site hosting market are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing segment, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing the very same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web space hosting offers on the entire web space hosting marketplace furnish absolutely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web space hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200k "web site hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The webspace hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different webspace hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an average fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the website making processes and the web page hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web pages . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, now there are more than 200,000 web site hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web space hosting brands worldwide will give you the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the present-day web space hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a mammoth stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps satisfied most hosting business requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side No.1: A laughable domain folder structure

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra careful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the web server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 growing puzzled? We surely are!

Inconvenience No.2: The same e-mail folder arrangement

The mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly enhance their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to botch things up too irretrievably.

Negative Aspect No.3: An utter deficiency of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we have to mention the complete shortage of a contemporary domain name manipulation interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" tool at all. That's a great disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

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

What about the need for an extra login to make use of the billing transaction, domain name and technical support administration tool? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based hosting service provider. Now and then, based on the invoice transaction platform (particularly conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting company is availing of, the ardent users can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain administration menu; 2: the ticket support software), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting Control Panel sections to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them briskly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting firms:

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