How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based site hosting offers on the present web space hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insubstantial business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized business segment, which provides an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering one and the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web space hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace supply strictly the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web space hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "web hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The web space hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different webspace hosting brand names. Imagine you are just an average person who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web pages . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique web site hosting brand names all over the world will give you the same cPanel CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present-day web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly satisfied most web hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side Number One: An idiotic domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be very attentive not to delete fully 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 domain names are very easy to erase on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. See 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 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)

Are you becoming baffled? We doubtlessly are!

Problem Number 2: The same mail folder structure

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly fortify their belief in God when managing the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.

Drawback Number Three: An absolute absence of domain name manipulation tools

Do we need to refer to the complete shortage of a contemporary domain administration tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois info, change/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" menu at all. That's a colossal drawback. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Problem No.4: Many user login places (min 2, maximum three)

How about the demand for an extra login to use the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration GUI? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based website hosting firm. Now and then, depending on the invoicing tool (particularly made for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the devoted customers can wind up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with a total of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Weakness No.5: More than 120 site hosting Control Panel departments to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better grasp them swiftly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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