How does cpanel-based web hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present-day web space hosting market are supplied by a quite inconsiderable business niche (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small-scale business niche, which supplies a big number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying strictly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the site hosting offers on the entire site hosting market offer exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web site hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 web page hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The web site hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google shows to us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting brand names. Suppose you are just a regular bloke who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and websites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200k web hosting corporations in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names all over the world will give you the very same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the contemporary site hosting marketplace is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps met all site hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: An imbecilic domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extra watchful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to delete on the hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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)

Are you becoming nonplussed? We surely are!

Predicament Number Two: The same e-mail folder structure

The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly fortify their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to botch things up too gravely.

Negative Aspect Number Three: An utter absence of domain administration menus

Do we need to bring up the complete lack of a modern domain name management GUI - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" interface at all. That's a great drawback. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, max 3)

How about the need for an extra login to use the billing, domain and technical support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web space hosting distributor. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (particularly created for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting vendor is making use of, the keen customers can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support platform), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting Control Panel sections to become acquainted with... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to learn each of them. And you'd better get acquainted 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 vendors:

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