How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offerings on the present webspace hosting market are provided by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing niche, which generates a great amount of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing absolutely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web site hosting offerings on the whole site hosting marketplace furnish literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web page hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "webspace hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The web page hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only an average person who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and sites . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 site hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique website hosting brands around the world will offer you the very same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the contemporary web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly covered all web site hosting industry requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect Number One: A laughable domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very watchful not to remove 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 simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder system 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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting perplexed? We undoubtedly are!

Negative Side No.2: The very same electronic mail folder structure

The mail folder structure on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chums firmly increase their faith in God when coping with the email folders on the email server, hoping not to fuck things up too badly.

Weak Side Number Three: A total shortage of domain name administration user interfaces

Do we need to mention the total deficiency of a modern domain manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, edit domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois info, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a big drawback. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Drawback No.4: Numerous user login places (min 2, max three)

How about the demand for an extra login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support administration interface? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based website hosting corporation. Now and then, depending on the billing transaction tool (principally devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is utilizing, the enthusiastic clients can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), winding up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Negative Sign Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty webspace hosting Control Panel menus to get familiar with... quickly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ menus inside the CP. It's a great idea to pick up each one of them. And you'd better grasp them swiftly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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