How does cpanel-based web site hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel web space hosting offerings on today's hosting market are generated by a quite unsubstantial business segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small marketing niche, which supplies a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing strictly the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offers on the whole website hosting marketplace supply the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel site hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, remark that one...

200,000 "site hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The site hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely a normal person who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web site hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web page hosting firms in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web hosting brand names around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel web site hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the contemporary webspace hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly met all webspace hosting industry requirements. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side Number One: A dumb domain folder structure

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely attentive not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 name)
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 becoming nonplussed? We definitely are!

Inconvenience No.2: The same email folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums firmly increase their belief in God when tackling the email folders on the e-mail server, praying not to muck things up too gravely.

Problem Number Three: A complete lack of domain name manipulation GUIs

Do we have to bring up the absolute lack of a modern domain name manipulation platform - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois information, protect the Whois information, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a gigantic predicament. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Inconvenience No.4: Many user login places (minimum two, max 3)

How about the need for an extra login to access the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management interface? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web hosting corporation. Now and then, depending on the invoice transaction tool (especially intended for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting corporation is utilizing, the eager clients can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain management interface; 2: the trouble ticket support interface), winding up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web space hosting Control Panel areas to learn... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting corporations:

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