How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on today's web space hosting market are generated by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a kind of a small-scale business segment, which furnishes an immense amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering literally the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting market supply one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web site hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web space hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200k "web space hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different site hosting brand names. Imagine you are just a regular bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web page hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200k web hosting firms out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brand names across the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the contemporary web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

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

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps met most web site hosting business preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side No.1: A dumb domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub 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 delete on the web hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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)
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 unquestionably are!

Shortcoming Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The email folder structure on the server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly strengthen their faith in God when managing the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too seriously.

Inconvenience Number 3: A complete absence of domain name manipulation menus

Do we need to bring up the utter lack of a contemporary domain management platform - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois information, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a gigantic weakness. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Negative Point No.4: Multiple login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for another login to avail of the billing, domain name and technical support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based site hosting service provider. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing platform (particularly invented for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is making use of, the devoted clients can wind up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Drawback Number Five: More than 120 web hosting Control Panel menus to become acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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