How does cpanel-based web site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the present-day web site hosting market are furnished by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a kind of a small-sized business segment, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering absolutely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offerings on the whole web page hosting marketplace supply exactly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/web page hosting CP choice. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 web site hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200,000 "hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The web site hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just an ordinary bloke who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development procedures and the webspace hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any webspace hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique web page hosting brand names across the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the present-day web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly covered all web hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side Number 1: A laughable domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra cautious not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to remove on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder arrangement 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)
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 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 puzzled? We definitely are!

Weak Point Number 2: The same electronic mail folder structure

The email folder arrangement on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin boys strongly enhance their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to screw things up too irretrievably.

Weak Side Number Three: A complete absence of domain management GUIs

Do we have to point out the thorough shortage of a modern domain name administration menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, change domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois details, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" tool at all. That's a big disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we would like to point out...

Shortcoming No.4: Many user login locations (min 2, maximum 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to access the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management menu? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting distributor. Sometimes, based on the invoicing tool (principally meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is using, the zealous customers can wind up with two additional login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration platform; 2: the ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Drawback No.5: 120+ hosting Control Panel areas to get familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each of them. And you'd better grasp them quickly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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