How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on the current site hosting marketplace are generated by a very insubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which generates a big amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying exactly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market supply precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based site hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web space hosting platform/web hosting CP option. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web site hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200k "site hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only a normal guy who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site creation processes and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and web portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web page hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names worldwide will offer you precisely the same cPanel CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on today's hosting market is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps covered most web site hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback No.1: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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 becoming perplexed? We clearly are!

Negative Aspect No.2: The very same email folder system

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin boys strongly enhance their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too seriously.

Shortcoming Number 3: An utter lack of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we have to cite the sheer shortage of a modern domain management GUI - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, alter/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a colossal problem. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Problem No.4: Numerous login places (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the demand for another login to use the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support management system? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web space hosting company. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing system (principally meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the eager users can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain management software; 2: the ticket support section), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Weakness No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel sections to get to know... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a terrific idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them promptly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based webspace hosting firms:

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