How does cpanel website hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based web space hosting offerings on the present hosting marketplace are furnished by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller webspace hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which furnishes a vast quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing literally the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web space hosting offers on the whole web page hosting marketplace furnish absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/site hosting CP option. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "webspace hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The web hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web space hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an average bloke who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web site making processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web page hosting alternative you can settle on? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200k website hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different web site hosting brand names worldwide will offer you exactly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the current web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

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

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably answered most web space hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point Number 1: A stupid domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)

Are you becoming nonplussed? We definitely are!

Negative Aspect Number Two: The same electronic mail folder structure

The e-mail folder structure on the server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their faith in God when tackling the mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too badly.

Weak Side Number 3: A total shortage of domain administration GUIs

Do we need to point out the absolute shortage of a contemporary domain name management menu - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, alter domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois info, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" menu at all. That's a big disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Shortcoming Number Four: Numerous login locations (min two, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to make use of the billing transaction, domain and tech support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web site hosting distributor. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction system (especially meant for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the devoted users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web site hosting Control Panel menus to become familiar with... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to learn each of them. And you'd better learn them promptly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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