How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel site hosting offers on the present-day website hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual money flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a type of a small business niche, which provides an immense number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing precisely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the webspace hosting offerings on the entire web space hosting marketplace offer strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other webspace hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "website hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The site hosting "variety" and the site hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are only a regular bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web site making processes and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200k hosting corporations in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web space hosting brands around the world will give you exactly the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

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

Weak Side Number 1: A stupid domain name folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely careful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase 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 is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how good 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 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 disorientated? We definitely are!

Negative Sign Number Two: The very same e-mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly enhance their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too severely.

Disadvantage Number 3: An entire shortage of domain management menus

Do we need to point out the entire absence of a modern domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domains' Whois details, secure the Whois information, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a considerable downside. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...

Downside Number Four: Many user login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an additional login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web page hosting distributor. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing transaction tool (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the ardent customers can wind up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain management interface; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP areas to become familiar with... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a fantastic idea to become familiar with each one of them. And you'd better get to know them fast... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting service providers:

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Note that one too...
