How does cpanel-based web site hosting work?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on the contemporary site hosting market are supplied by a very insignificant business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing segment, which generates a great quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing precisely the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the webspace hosting offerings on the whole web space hosting marketplace furnish strictly the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service almost no other webspace hosting platform/web site hosting CP choice. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200k "web page hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web page hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only an average person who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site development procedures and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and websites . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web page hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k web space hosting firms in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique hosting brands across the world will offer you the same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present-day web hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered all website hosting market preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament Number One: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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)
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)

Are you growing puzzled? We undoubtedly are!

Predicament No.2: The very same e-mail folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder structure on the server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too severely.

Disadvantage No.3: A sheer shortage of domain name administration tools

Do we have to bring up the sheer shortage of a contemporary domain management GUI - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" section at all. That's a huge disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Weakness Number Four: Numerous user login places (min 2, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel site hosting vendor. At times, depending on the billing transaction system (particularly developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the keen users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of three user login places (including cPanel).

Problem Number Five: 120+ Control Panel departments to become acquainted with... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better learn them swiftly... That's quite arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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