How cPanel Web Hosting Operates

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are generated by a quite unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing niche, which supplies a big quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing precisely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace provide one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are alike. Quite identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting CP alternative. So, there is only one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

The hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a regular fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 website hosting service providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brand names in the world will offer you the very same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the contemporary hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably met all website hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect Number One: An idiotic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely watchful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent 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 hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed 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 amazing cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you growing bewildered? We positively are!

Weak Point Number Two: The same email folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder structure on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly strengthen their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to screw things up too severely.

Drawback Number 3: A thorough lack of domain name management menus

Do we have to mention the absolute shortage of a contemporary domain management tool - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois details, shield the Whois info, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a huge problem. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Problem Number Four: Numerous user login locations (min 2, max 3)

What about the necessity for another login to access the billing, domain and tech support administration interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based hosting firm. Now and then, based on the invoicing platform (especially made for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting provider is making use of, the earnest customers can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management tool; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel departments to pick up... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them quickly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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