How does cpanel website hosting work?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on today's web page hosting market are provided by a very insubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller webspace hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing niche, which supplies an enormous amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering the very same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web page hosting offerings on the entire site hosting marketplace furnish the very same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/web space hosting CP choice. So, there is merely one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web page hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200,000 "webspace hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a regular fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web site creation processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and web pages . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any site hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200,000 hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web space hosting brand names worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on today's web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably met all web hosting business 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: A moronic domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very cautious not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub 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 simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known 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 try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is located)
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 name)
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 puzzled? We doubtlessly are!

Disadvantage No.2: The same mail folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly fortify their belief in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too gravely.

Problem Number Three: A thorough shortage of domain name administration menus

Do we have to point out the absolute absence of a modern domain management tool - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a gigantic downside. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...

Disadvantage No.4: Many user login locations (min two, max 3)

How about the need for another login to avail of the invoicing, domain and tech support administration interface? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web page hosting vendor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (principally conceived for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the zealous users can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Side No.5: More than 120 hosting CP departments to grasp... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting companies:

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