How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based webspace hosting offers on the present-day website hosting market are provided by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which provides a huge number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering the very same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the entire hosting market supply strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other webspace hosting platform/Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web space hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The website hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only an average guy who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page making processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web site hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200k hosting service providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names across the world will offer you the very same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the current web site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably satisfied all web site hosting market prerequisites. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback No.1: A ludicrous domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra careful not to delete fully 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). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder system 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 name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 disorientated? We surely are!

Predicament Number Two: The same electronic mail folder system

The mail folder structure on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly strengthen their faith in God when handling the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irretrievably.

Negative Sign Number Three: A thorough lack of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we need to cite the absolute deficiency of a contemporary domain name manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a gigantic downside. An unjustifiable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Side No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the need for an additional login to use the billing, domain and tech support administration software platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web site hosting company. At times, based on the invoicing transaction tool (especially made for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the earnest clients can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration section; 2: the ticket support software platform), winding up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty CP menus to get acquainted with... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web space hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them swiftly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
