How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present webspace hosting marketplace are generated by a very insignificant marketing segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which provides an immense amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing strictly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web page hosting offers on the whole web page hosting market supply one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "web space hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The web page hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely a regular bloke who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the website making processes and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and websites . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web space hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k web space hosting service providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique site hosting brand names worldwide will give you absolutely the same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on the present-day hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably answered most web page hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign No.1: An imbecilic domain folder structure

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra cautious not to delete fully 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 delete on the server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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. Discover for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder configuration 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)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 name)

Are you getting nonplussed? We undoubtedly are!

Weakness Number Two: The same electronic mail folder configuration

The mail folder structure on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly reinforce their faith in God when handling the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too harshly.

Inconvenience No.3: A thorough lack of domain management sections

Do we need to cite the sheer absence of a contemporary domain name manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domains' Whois information, secure the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" tool at all. That's a big problem. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Weak Side Number 4: Multiple login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration tool? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting service provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (principally invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is utilizing, the devoted customers can end up with two additional login locations (1: the billing/domain management software; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of three login places (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting CP areas to become familiar with... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ sections inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel site hosting distributors:

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