How does cpanel web site hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web space hosting offerings on the present hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing segment, which provides a huge number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the webspace hosting offers on the whole webspace hosting market supply the very same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other webspace hosting platform/web space hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200,000 "web space hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web page hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google shows to us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web page hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just a normal guy who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the website making processes and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web pages . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web page hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 web space hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique web site hosting brands all over the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the present hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably answered most web page hosting industry prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number One: A ludicrous domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be very attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the web server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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 delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)

Are you getting puzzled? We clearly are!

Problem Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly strengthen their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to muck things up too harshly.

Inconvenience Number Three: An absolute shortage of domain name management sections

Do we have to point out the total deficiency of a contemporary domain manipulation menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, edit domains' Whois info, secure the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an immense predicament. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Sign Number Four: Numerous user login places (min two, max three)

What about the need for another login to use the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support management section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web site hosting vendor. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing tool (especially intended for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the zealous clients can wind up with two additional logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration system; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with a total of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Point No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP menus to memorize... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ sections inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better grasp them swiftly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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