How does cpanel-based web hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based web space hosting offers on the present-day web site hosting market are provided by a very insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web space hosting is a type of a small-size marketing niche, which supplies a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying exactly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the entire hosting marketplace supply the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/web space hosting CP option. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200k "web hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just an average fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site making procedures and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and websites . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web space hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 webspace hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web site hosting brands in the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on today's website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps satisfied most site hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point No.1: A laughable domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely attentive not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing puzzled? We positively are!

Negative Point Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The mail folder configuration on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin guys strongly strengthen their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too badly.

Negative Sign Number Three: A total deficiency of domain name manipulation GUIs

Do we need to bring up the thorough lack of a contemporary domain management menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a big shortcoming. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Negative Sign No.4: Many login places (min two, max three)

What about the need for an additional login to use the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration software solution? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web page hosting corporation. At times, based on the invoicing tool (particularly devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is utilizing, the enthusiastic customers can wind up with two additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Weakness Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty hosting Control Panel areas to memorize... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the CP. It's a terrific idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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