How does cpanel hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel web site hosting offerings on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a sort of a small marketing segment, which furnishes an immense amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing the very same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the entire site hosting market furnish literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/hosting CP choice. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web space hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "webspace hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The webspace hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just an ordinary fellow who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the site making processes and the web space hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200k website hosting distributors out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique webspace hosting brand names all over the world will give you strictly the same cPanel CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the current web site hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps fulfilled most web page hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Disadvantage Number 1: An imbecilic domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra attentive not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to delete on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known 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. Decide for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 name)

Are you getting perplexed? We unquestionably are!

Problem No.2: The same mail folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The admin chums firmly reinforce their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too irretrievably.

Downside Number 3: An entire absence of domain name manipulation menus

Do we have to cite the entire shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois info, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" menu at all. That's a vast weakness. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Weak Point Number Four: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, max three)

How about the need for an extra login to use the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration user interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based webspace hosting provider. Sometimes, based on the billing transaction platform (principally developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting company is utilizing, the devoted clients can end up with two additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration GUI; 2: the ticket support software platform), ending up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Downside Number Five: 120+ website hosting Control Panel menus to pick up... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to learn each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them quickly... That's very impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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