How does cpanel hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offers on the present-day web hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small business segment, which generates a vast quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying one and the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire web site hosting market furnish one and the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web space hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200k "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary bloke who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and websites . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any hosting variant you can pick? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web space hosting firms in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different webspace hosting brands all over the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the present-day website hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math reveals that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

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

Disadvantage Number 1: A stupid domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be very careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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 try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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)
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 confused? We positively are!

Predicament Number 2: The same email folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly reinforce their faith in God when managing the email folders on the mail server, praying not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Drawback Number 3: An absolute shortage of domain name administration sections

Do we have to point out the thorough absence of a contemporary domain name administration interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a big inconvenience. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Weakness Number 4: Many login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support management section? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based webspace hosting corporation. At times, based on the billing transaction tool (especially designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is making use of, the keen customers can end up with two additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Downside No.5: More than 120 hosting Control Panel menus to get to know... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the web space hosting CP. It's a terrific idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better become familiar with them fast... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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