How does cpanel-based web hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel web page hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are generated by a very unsubstantial business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing niche, which provides an enormous number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web space hosting market furnish absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/CP option. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 web page hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

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

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only an average bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website making procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web portals . Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200k web page hosting 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 site hosting brand names across the world will give you the same cPanel web site hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the present-day web hosting market is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

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

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably covered all site hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side No.1: A dumb domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra watchful not to erase 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 erase on the web server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how great 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)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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)

Are you becoming baffled? We surely are!

Weak Side Number 2: The very same email folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly reinforce their faith in God when managing the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too severely.

Weak Point Number 3: An absolute absence of domain name administration sections

Do we have to cite the sheer shortage of a modern domain management interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" menu at all. That's a vast weakness. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Disadvantage Number 4: Many login places (minimum 2, max three)

What about the necessity for another login to make use of the billing transaction, domain name and technical support management platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web site hosting firm. Occasionally, depending on the billing tool (especially meant for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is making use of, the eager customers can end up with two extra login locations (1: the billing/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Aspect No.5: 120+ website hosting CP sections to pick up... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 menus inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them fast... That's extremely impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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