How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the current web hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web space hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which provides a big amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying exactly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market offer strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 webspace hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "site hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The webspace hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web page hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only a normal guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting alternative you can decide upon? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web hosting companies in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on today's web page hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied all web page hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number 1: A stupid domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra attentive not to remove 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). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to erase on the web hosting server, because 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. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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 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 growing puzzled? We doubtlessly are!

Weak Point No.2: The same email folder system

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too gravely.

Negative Aspect Number Three: An entire shortage of domain name manipulation tools

Do we have to point out the total absence of a modern domain name administration GUI - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois information, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a major shortcoming. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Shortcoming Number Four: Numerous login locations (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the need for an extra login to use the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support management interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web site hosting supplier. Now and then, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (principally developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the eager clients can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the billing/domain management tool; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty hosting CP departments to memorize... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up fast... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web site hosting vendors:

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
