How does cpanel site hosting function?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offers on the contemporary web site hosting market are furnished by a quite insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which supplies a huge quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering one and the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire site hosting marketplace furnish strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/web space hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "web page hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web site hosting brand names. Assume you are only an ordinary fellow who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page making procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different webspace hosting brands across the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the present web site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly answered most web page hosting business preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Point Number One: A ludicrous domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder setup 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 name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 getting confused? We clearly are!

Weak Side No.2: The very same e-mail folder arrangement

The email folder arrangement on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin guys strongly increase their faith in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too fatally.

Drawback No.3: An entire absence of domain administration sections

Do we have to bring up the sheer lack of a contemporary domain management menu - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" section at all. That's a vast drawback. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Negative Sign Number Four: Numerous login places (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an additional login to access the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support management software? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web site hosting vendor. Sometimes, based on the billing platform (principally intended for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the enthusiastic customers can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain management software; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Weak Side No.5: More than 120 site hosting CP departments to learn... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the CP. It's a terrific idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them promptly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting companies:

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