How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based web page hosting offers on the present website hosting market are furnished by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web space hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which generates a vast number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web space hosting offers on the whole webspace hosting market furnish the very same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/webspace hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200k web site hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200k "web site hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely branded

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web site hosting brand names. Assume you are merely a regular chap who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can select? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 site hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's web space hosting market is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably satisfied most website hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign Number 1: A ludicrous domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extremely cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder arrangement 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)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 name)
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 name)

Are you becoming baffled? We doubtlessly are!

Negative Point No.2: The very same email folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to muck things up too severely.

Negative Point No.3: A sheer absence of domain manipulation options

Do we need to point out the total absence of a contemporary domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" section at all. That's an enormous inconvenience. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Sign Number 4: Numerous login places (min two, max 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to utilize the billing, domain and technical support management user interface? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based site hosting service provider. Occasionally, based on the invoicing system (especially meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the enthusiastic customers can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing/domain administration software solution; 2: the ticket support software platform), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Disadvantage Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty site hosting Control Panel areas to become familiar with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them fast... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web site hosting suppliers:

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