How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel website hosting offers on today's website hosting marketplace are provided by a very insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a type of a small business niche, which provides a vast number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web site hosting offers on the entire webspace hosting market furnish absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based site hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web page hosting CP alternative. So, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

200k "web site hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are simply a normal guy who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web page creation procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 web space hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different web site hosting brand names across the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the present-day webspace hosting market is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps fulfilled most web hosting market prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming No.1: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, however, be ultra watchful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to erase on the web server, because they all are placed 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 located 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. Examine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)

Are you growing confused? We surely are!

Weak Point Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder structure on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly strengthen their faith in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too severely.

Shortcoming No.3: An entire shortage of domain administration GUIs

Do we have to mention the sheer deficiency of a contemporary domain administration platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, protect the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" section at all. That's a colossal disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Weak Side Number Four: Multiple user login locations (min two, max 3)

What about the need for an extra login to make use of the invoicing, domain and tech support administration GUI? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web site hosting vendor. Now and then, on the basis of the billing transaction system (principally conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting supplier is using, the ardent customers can end up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support platform), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Disadvantage Number Five: 120+ website hosting Control Panel areas to pick up... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's extremely impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web page hosting distributors:

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