How does cpanel web site hosting function?

For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the contemporary web page hosting market are supplied by a quite insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller webspace hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing niche, which provides a vast quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying the very same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web page hosting marketplace provide one and the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web site hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200,000 webspace hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200k "web space hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting brand names. Assume you are only an ordinary bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 web site hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique site hosting brands around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present-day web page hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps fulfilled most web site hosting business prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament Number One: An imbecilic domain folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the web 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 is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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)

Are you becoming baffled? We clearly are!

Drawback No.2: The very same email folder system

The electronic mail folder structure on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly fortify their faith in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too fatally.

Negative Side No.3: A total lack of domain administration sections

Do we need to mention the complete absence of a modern domain name manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a mammoth drawback. An unforgivable one, we wish to add...

Disadvantage Number 4: Numerous user login places (min two, max 3)

What about the demand for another login to avail of the billing transaction, domain and technical support management interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based webspace hosting provider. At times, depending on the billing tool (particularly created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is utilizing, the eager users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect No.5: 120+ hosting CP menus to memorize... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up promptly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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