How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web space hosting offers on the present-day website hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small business niche, which furnishes a huge amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing the very same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace offer one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel site hosting prices are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web space hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

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

The web site hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web space hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an average guy who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and online portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any webspace hosting option you can choose? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand hosting distributors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique web space hosting brands around the world will give you strictly the same cPanel web site hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the contemporary web site hosting market is... Period.

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied all website hosting business prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Disadvantage No.1: A foolish domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra careful not to erase completely 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 domains are quite easy to remove on the hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain 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 name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 bewildered? We positively are!

Negative Point No.2: The same electronic mail folder structure

The e-mail folder structure on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly fortify their faith in God when tackling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too badly.

Weak Side No.3: A total shortage of domain manipulation sections

Do we have to point out the complete deficiency of a modern domain management tool - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" menu at all. That's a considerable shortcoming. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, maximum three)

How about the demand for an additional login to use the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration GUI? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web site hosting company. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing system (particularly meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is utilizing, the ardent clients can end up with two additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain name management GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting CP menus to memorize... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them quickly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel site hosting service providers:

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