How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offers on the present web page hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which supplies a big amount of different web hosting brands, yet providing precisely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the site hosting offerings on the entire webspace hosting marketplace supply exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web site hosting platform/webspace hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is only one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The web page hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web space hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only an ordinary bloke who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web space hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200k website hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different webspace hosting brand names worldwide will give you the very same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on the contemporary website hosting market is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled most site hosting business prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Inconvenience No.1: A moronic domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extra careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder setup 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 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 getting confused? We clearly are!

Predicament No.2: The same mail folder arrangement

The mail folder configuration on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly fortify their faith in God when managing the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to mess things up too seriously.

Inconvenience Number Three: A total shortage of domain name administration sections

Do we need to cite the sheer absence of a contemporary domain manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois info, secure the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" tool at all. That's a vast downside. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Negative Point No.4: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the need for an extra login to use the billing, domain and technical support administration tool? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web space hosting vendor. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (especially made for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting distributor is using, the keen customers can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support GUI), ending up with a total of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Shortcoming Number 5: More than 120 webspace hosting Control Panel departments to learn... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 menus inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, 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 too...
