How does cpanel site hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web page hosting offers on the present-day website hosting marketplace are provided by a quite insignificant business segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing segment, which supplies a huge quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing strictly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web site hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market provide precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "webspace hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offerings" Google shows to us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply an average chap who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can decide upon? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k web site hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different hosting brands around the world will offer you literally the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the diversity on the current web site hosting market is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled most web space hosting business preconditions. 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...

Negative Point Number 1: An idiotic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very attentive not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, 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 web server, since they all are located 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 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. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is located)
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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming baffled? We positively are!

Weakness No.2: The same electronic mail folder setup

The e-mail folder structure on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly enhance their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to botch things up too irretrievably.

Weak Side Number 3: A total shortage of domain name administration options

Do we have to bring up the total absence of a modern domain management user interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a major predicament. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Weakness Number Four: Many user login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the necessity for an extra login to utilize the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration platform? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web space hosting company. Now and then, based on the invoice transaction system (principally developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the avid users can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty Control Panel menus to get acquainted with... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them fast... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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