How does cpanel site hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the current webspace hosting marketplace are provided by a very insubstantial business segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which provides a huge number of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering the very same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole hosting market supply precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web site hosting platform/webspace hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The site hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply an average person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and websites . Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any site hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 web space hosting service providers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web page hosting brands across the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the present site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably satisfied all webspace hosting industry demands. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Disadvantage No.1: A moronic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting disorientated? We surely are!

Downside Number Two: The very same email folder system

The email folder arrangement on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums firmly strengthen their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too seriously.

Negative Point No.3: An utter absence of domain name administration tools

Do we need to bring up the complete absence of a contemporary domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domains' Whois info, protect the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a big downside. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Weak Side Number 4: Numerous login locations (min 2, max three)

What about the demand for an extra login to make use of the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel webspace hosting corporation. Sometimes, based on the billing tool (principally made for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is using, the zealous customers can end up with two additional login locations (1: the billing/domain name administration software solution; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: 120+ CP menus to memorize... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 sections inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them quickly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting distributors:

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