How does cpanel web hosting work?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present web page hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insubstantial business niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing niche, which furnishes a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing absolutely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offers on the entire web hosting market supply literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web space hosting platform/web page hosting CP option. So, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200,000 "site hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web page hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a normal person who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web page hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web space hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique web site hosting brands worldwide will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's web site hosting market is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly covered all web hosting industry preconditions. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Point No.1: A stupid domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra watchful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very 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. Observe for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 confused? We surely are!

Shortcoming Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder system

The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly fortify their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the email server, praying not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Negative Aspect Number 3: A thorough lack of domain name manipulation GUIs

Do we have to bring up the thorough lack of a contemporary domain administration menu - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois details, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a vast weakness. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Weak Point Number 4: Many login places (min 2, maximum three)

What about the need for an additional login to access the billing, domain and technical support management section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web space hosting corporation. Now and then, on the basis of the invoice transaction tool (particularly designed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting distributor is utilizing, the zealous clients can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration system; 2: the ticket support software), ending up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: 120+ webspace hosting CP areas to get to know... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a fantastic idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better learn them promptly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web page hosting firms:

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