How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web space hosting offerings on the current hosting market are furnished by a quite insignificant business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale business niche, which supplies an immense number of different web hosting brands, yet providing exactly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the site hosting offerings on the entire site hosting market furnish one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web page hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k site hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200k "site hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The site hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just an ordinary bloke who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting option you can decide upon? Of course there is, at present there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting companies in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique site hosting brands in the world will give you exactly the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on the present-day web page hosting market is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps answered all web site hosting industry demands. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament Number One: An idiotic domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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 domain names, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 becoming nonplussed? We unquestionably are!

Negative Sign Number Two: The very same email folder setup

The e-mail folder structure on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too seriously.

Negative Sign No.3: A complete lack of domain name administration menus

Do we need to mention the total absence of a contemporary domain name administration interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois info, shield the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" menu at all. That's an immense shortcoming. An unforgivable one, we wish to add...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Numerous login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for another login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support administration platform? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting distributor. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing platform (especially devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting provider is using, the avid customers can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration menu; 2: the ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: 120+ webspace hosting Control Panel departments to pick up... fast

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them fast... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web space hosting vendors:

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