How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the present web site hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial business niche (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-size business niche, which generates a vast quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing literally the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offers on the entire site hosting market offer one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting price tags are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel option. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mark that one...

200,000 "webspace hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The hosting "variety" and the hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different site hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply a regular person who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site making procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k web site hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brands in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on today's web site hosting market is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably met all webspace hosting market prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience No.1: A dumb domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be very cautious not to remove 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). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 becoming perplexed? We categorically are!

Predicament No.2: The same e-mail folder structure

The mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irreparably.

Weak Point No.3: A sheer lack of domain manipulation options

Do we need to bring up the absolute shortage of a contemporary domain management interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois details, shield the Whois info, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" tool at all. That's a gigantic downside. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Predicament No.4: Many login locations (minimum two, max three)

How about the demand for another login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support administration menu? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting company. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing platform (especially tailored for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the keen clients can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: 120+ Control Panel sections to become familiar with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the hosting CP. It's a fantastic idea to learn each of them. And you'd better get to know them swiftly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web space hosting providers:

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