How does cpanel-based website hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on the present site hosting market are furnished by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a type of a small-size business segment, which provides a big amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire webspace hosting marketplace offer strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web page hosting price tags are identical. Very similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200k "site hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The web site hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web space hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely a normal guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web page hosting alternative you can decide upon? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique hosting brand names around the world will give you literally the same cPanel web site hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present-day website hosting market is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably covered most web hosting business requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point No.1: A foolish domain name folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra cautious not to delete completely 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). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the hosting 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 name is a folder located 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. Discover for yourself how marvelous 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 nonplussed? We absolutely are!

Weak Side Number Two: The very same email folder structure

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly enhance their belief in God when managing the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too irreparably.

Inconvenience No.3: A total shortage of domain name manipulation tools

Do we need to point out the utter absence of a contemporary domain manipulation tool - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a colossal shortcoming. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Shortcoming Number Four: Many user login locations (min 2, maximum three)

How about the need for another login to avail of the invoicing, domain and tech support administration software? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel site hosting company. Occasionally, based on the invoicing transaction tool (especially meant for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting corporation is utilizing, the ardent users can wind up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management user interface; 2: the ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: 120+ web hosting CP areas to pick up... briskly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 menus inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them rapidly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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