How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing segment, which furnishes a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet offering literally the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offers on the whole hosting market offer one and the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/site hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web site hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "site hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The web page hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are just an ordinary guy who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and web pages . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any site hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k webspace hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different hosting brands all over the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the current web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably covered all web page hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside No.1: An imbecilic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be ultra careful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to remove on the web server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known 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 delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure 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)
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 name)

Are you growing confused? We clearly are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The same email folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys strongly fortify their faith in God when coping with the mail folders on the email server, praying not to botch things up too irretrievably.

Weak Side Number 3: An entire shortage of domain management GUIs

Do we need to refer to the sheer shortage of a modern domain name management menu - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, protect the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a huge drawback. An unforgivable one, we want to point out...

Shortcoming Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to access the invoicing, domain and technical support administration system? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting company. Now and then, based on the invoicing transaction platform (principally developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is making use of, the eager customers can wind up with two extra login places (1: the billing/domain management software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

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

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 areas inside the web page hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them rapidly... That's very impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting suppliers:

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