How does cpanel-based hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insignificant business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size business segment, which supplies an enormous amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering absolutely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the webspace hosting offerings on the whole website hosting market provide one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "webspace hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different site hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an average person who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site development processes and the web page hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web portals . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any hosting option you can select? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 web space hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands around the world will offer you the very same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the contemporary web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps satisfied most web page hosting business demands. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect Number 1: A foolish domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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 try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
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 name)
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 growing perplexed? We undeniably are!

Weakness Number 2: The same email folder arrangement

The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly enhance their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the email server, praying not to mess things up too fatally.

Inconvenience No.3: An utter shortage of domain name manipulation options

Do we have to refer to the sheer lack of a modern domain administration user interface - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois info, shield the Whois details, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a gigantic predicament. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Shortcoming Number 4: Multiple login places (min two, max three)

How about the necessity for another login to access the invoice transaction, domain and technical support management software platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web page hosting provider. At times, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (especially meant for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is making use of, the avid clients can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain management interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web site hosting CP menus to memorize... swiftly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ sections inside the Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web site hosting suppliers:

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