How does cpanel-based hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offerings on the current web space hosting market are furnished by a quite unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing literally the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole web site hosting marketplace provide literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web site hosting platform/web page hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200k site hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The web page hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely an average guy who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the site making procedures and the webspace hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and web pages . Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web space hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200,000 web space hosting suppliers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different web site hosting brand names worldwide will give you strictly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the present web space hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a great strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably satisfied all web space hosting market requirements. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number One: An idiotic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very watchful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, 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 web hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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)

Are you becoming disorientated? We categorically are!

Shortcoming Number Two: The very same email folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes firmly increase their faith in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Downside No.3: A sheer lack of domain name administration tools

Do we need to bring up the thorough shortage of a modern domain name management interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois information, secure the Whois info, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" interface at all. That's a gigantic problem. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Numerous login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the demand for an extra login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain and tech support administration software? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting provider. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing transaction system (especially meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting distributor is using, the enthusiastic users can end up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain name management tool; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), ending up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Sign No.5: 120+ web hosting Control Panel areas to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ menus inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up fast... That's extremely impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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