How does cpanel-based hosting function?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on the current webspace hosting market are furnished by a quite insubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small-size business niche, which furnishes an immense quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the whole hosting marketplace provide literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/webspace hosting CP option. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "web page hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The site hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely a normal guy who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web site development processes and the web space hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any site hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand web space hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands around the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the current website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a mammoth stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps met all hosting industry prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Problem Number One: A moronic domain folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extra attentive not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the hosting server, since they all are created 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 placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here is located)
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)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 growing puzzled? We undoubtedly are!

Inconvenience No.2: The very same e-mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin guys strongly enhance their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too irretrievably.

Disadvantage Number 3: A total deficiency of domain name manipulation user interfaces

Do we have to cite the utter shortage of a modern domain name management interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" interface at all. That's an enormous downside. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Downside Number 4: Numerous user login locations (min 2, max 3)

How about the demand for an additional login to access the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration menu? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel website hosting supplier. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing platform (particularly intended for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the keen clients can end up with two extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain management menu; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty site hosting CP menus to grasp... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them quickly... That's way too insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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