How does cpanel-based web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offers on today's web page hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which generates an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying the very same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market provide exactly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web site hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k site hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200,000 "website hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web space hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different webspace hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply an ordinary person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any site hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200,000 site hosting firms in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different web page hosting brands worldwide will offer you absolutely the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on today's web space hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based web site hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps fulfilled all web space hosting market requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect Number 1: A stupid domain name folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very attentive not to remove 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 domains are very easy to delete on the web hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular 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 attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder setup 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)
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 becoming confused? We undeniably are!

Predicament Number 2: The very same email folder arrangement

The e-mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly strengthen their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too fatally.

Downside Number 3: A total deficiency of domain name management menus

Do we have to refer to the complete deficiency of a modern domain management tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a major inconvenience. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...

Negative Sign No.4: Multiple user login places (min two, max three)

How about the demand for an extra login to use the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration section? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web page hosting supplier. Occasionally, depending on the billing platform (especially developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the earnest customers can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain name administration interface; 2: the ticket support interface), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).

Problem No.5: 120+ site hosting CP departments to learn... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a superb idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them briskly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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