How does cpanel site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web site hosting offers on the contemporary webspace hosting market are furnished by a quite insignificant business niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small-size business segment, which furnishes a vast quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying strictly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web page hosting offerings on the whole website hosting market provide strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/webspace hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "web hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The web site hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web site hosting brand names. Assume you are simply a regular chap who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web site making processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and web pages . Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web hosting companies out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, named differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the contemporary 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 firm is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied most web hosting market demands. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness Number 1: A foolish domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely careful not to erase completely 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). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)
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)

Are you growing confused? We surely are!

Negative Point Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The email folder structure on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly fortify their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too seriously.

Negative Point Number Three: A total lack of domain management interfaces

Do we have to mention the sheer deficiency of a modern domain management GUI - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois details, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" tool at all. That's a gigantic predicament. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...

Downside No.4: Many user login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an additional login to utilize the billing, domain name and tech support management system? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web page hosting firm. At times, based on the invoice transaction tool (particularly designed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is availing of, the eager customers can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing transaction/domain management section; 2: the ticket support software platform), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty web space hosting Control Panel areas to get acquainted with... briskly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 areas inside the site hosting CP. It's a terrific idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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