How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the present-day website hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small marketing niche, which provides a huge amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying absolutely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace supply absolutely the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based webspace hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/web site hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200k "web space hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The web page hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web space hosting brand names. Assume you are only a regular fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site making procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k web site hosting distributors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web site hosting brand names all over the world will give you exactly the same cPanel web site hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the current site hosting market is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based site hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably answered most site hosting industry preconditions. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Point Number One: A stupid domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
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)

Are you becoming confused? We undeniably are!

Downside No.2: The same e-mail folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums firmly reinforce their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too irretrievably.

Weakness Number Three: An utter deficiency of domain name manipulation GUIs

Do we have to point out the total shortage of a contemporary domain name administration interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" section at all. That's a big drawback. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Weak Side No.4: Multiple user login locations (min 2, max three)

What about the need for an extra login to use the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support management section? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web page hosting service provider. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction platform (especially designed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is utilizing, the ardent clients can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: 120+ website hosting CP departments to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the web page hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them fast... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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