How does cpanel-based website hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offerings on the current web page hosting market are supplied by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which supplies a big quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet offering the very same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the whole webspace hosting market offer precisely the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel site hosting price tags are identical. Very similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other site hosting platform/Control Panel choice. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web site hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200,000 "hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web page hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just an ordinary chap who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web site making procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and online portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any site hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand web space hosting companies in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brand names worldwide will offer you exactly the same cPanel web page hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the current site hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps met most webspace hosting business prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number One: A moronic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very watchful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the hosting server, since they all are situated 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 erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting disorientated? We positively are!

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

The mail folder structure on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly fortify their faith in God when managing the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to bungle things up too irreparably.

Weak Point Number Three: An utter lack of domain name manipulation tools

Do we need to cite the sheer absence of a modern domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois details, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" menu at all. That's an immense downside. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Weakness No.4: Numerous user login places (min 2, max three)

How about the demand for an extra login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration system? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting service provider. Occasionally, based on the invoicing transaction system (particularly created for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is making use of, the ardent clients can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain name administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Side No.5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel areas to get to know... fast

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them rapidly... That's quite arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting suppliers:

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