How does cpanel web site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on today's site hosting marketplace are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing niche, which furnishes a great quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing precisely 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 website hosting offers on the entire web hosting market offer absolutely the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/web site hosting CP alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "web space hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely an average guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page development processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web page hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting firms 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 brand names all over the world will offer you literally the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the current web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably fulfilled all web page hosting business requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number 1: An imbecilic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to erase fully 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is placed)
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 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 name)

Are you becoming confused? We undoubtedly are!

Shortcoming Number Two: The very same email folder system

The email folder configuration on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly reinforce their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to botch things up too severely.

Weak Side Number 3: A sheer absence of domain manipulation user interfaces

Do we have to mention the sheer absence of a modern domain name management tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domains' Whois info, protect the Whois info, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a major disadvantage. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Problem No.4: Multiple login locations (minimum two, max 3)

How about the necessity for an extra login to avail of the billing, domain and technical support management software solution? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web site hosting provider. At times, depending on the billing system (especially invented for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is making use of, the ardent customers can end up with two extra logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration menu; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting Control Panel sections to get to know... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the website hosting CP. It's a superb idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up fast... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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