How does cpanel-based web site hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on the present-day site hosting marketplace are provided by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which furnishes a vast quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing one and the same solutions: 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 website hosting market furnish strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/web hosting CP option. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "web page hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web site hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an ordinary person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than 200,000 web page hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the present web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly satisfied most web space hosting industry preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number One: A moronic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extra cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to 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 easy to delete on the web server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here is located)
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 becoming bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Weak Point Number 2: The same e-mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too badly.

Weak Side Number 3: An absolute shortage of domain administration sections

Do we have to refer to the utter shortage of a modern domain administration interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a great problem. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Multiple user login locations (min two, max three)

What about the need for an additional login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support administration menu? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributor. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing tool (particularly tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting vendor is using, the zealous customers can end up with two extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain management tool; 2: the ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty hosting CP menus to pick up... briskly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better grasp them fast... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web page hosting service providers:

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one too...
