How does cpanel-based web hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web site hosting offers on the present-day web page hosting market are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing niche, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing one and the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offerings on the entire web site hosting market offer exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/Control Panel option. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an ordinary fellow who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the website making processes and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web portals . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web page hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web site hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names around the world will give you strictly the same cPanel web site hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the present-day webspace hosting marketplace is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably fulfilled most web site hosting business preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number One: A dumb domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra careful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domains, please. Discover for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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)
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 getting confused? We absolutely are!

Disadvantage Number Two: The very same mail folder system

The mail folder structure on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly fortify their faith in God when coping with the email folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too seriously.

Weak Point Number 3: A complete absence of domain name administration user interfaces

Do we need to refer to the total lack of a modern domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" section at all. That's a mammoth inconvenience. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Weak Side Number Four: Numerous login places (min 2, max 3)

What about the need for another login to utilize the invoicing, domain and tech support management GUI? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web page hosting corporation. At times, on the basis of the billing tool (especially devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting vendor is availing of, the ardent users can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain name administration software platform; 2: the ticket support user interface), winding up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Weak Point Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP areas to get to know... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the CP. It's a superb idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up briskly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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