How does cpanel-based hosting work?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel site hosting offerings on today's web page hosting marketplace are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which supplies a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web space hosting offers on the whole hosting marketplace provide absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/web site hosting CP choice. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "web hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The web site hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web space hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just a regular chap who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200,000 hosting distributors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different site hosting brand names in the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present web site hosting market is... Period.

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably covered all web space hosting market requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number One: A dumb domain name folder system

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra cautious not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, 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, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, 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. Check for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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 name)
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 name)

Are you becoming bewildered? We surely are!

Negative Side Number Two: The same mail folder setup

The mail folder structure on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes firmly strengthen their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to botch things up too gravely.

Negative Aspect Number Three: A complete deficiency of domain administration options

Do we need to refer to the complete shortage of a modern domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois information, protect the Whois details, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" tool at all. That's a major inconvenience. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...

Shortcoming No.4: Many user login locations (minimum 2, max three)

How about the demand for an extra login to access the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support management software solution? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel website hosting company. At times, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (particularly developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting provider is availing of, the devoted customers can end up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Sign Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty CP areas to become acquainted with... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them briskly... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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