How does cpanel web hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present-day hosting marketplace are furnished by a very inconsiderable business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing niche, which generates a great amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering exactly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offers on the whole web site hosting marketplace supply the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP option. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 site hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offerings" Google shows to us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web space hosting brand names. Imagine you are just an average bloke who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and websites . Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web page hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web page hosting brands across the world will give you exactly the same cPanel web site hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the contemporary hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably satisfied all web site hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Point No.1: An idiotic domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very watchful not to remove 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is located)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting disorientated? We undoubtedly are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The same electronic mail folder structure

The email folder configuration on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys firmly reinforce their faith in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to botch things up too severely.

Predicament Number 3: A thorough shortage of domain name management GUIs

Do we need to mention the absolute absence of a contemporary domain name administration GUI - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois information, protect the Whois info, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" section at all. That's an immense shortcoming. An unjustifiable one, we wish to add...

Predicament Number 4: Multiple user login locations (min two, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an additional login to use the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration user interface? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting supplier. Now and then, depending on the billing transaction platform (especially developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the earnest users can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), winding up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: 120+ site hosting CP departments to get acquainted with... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's way too insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based webspace hosting suppliers:

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