How does cpanel web site hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the present-day site hosting market are provided by a very insubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small business segment, which furnishes a big number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing one and the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offers on the whole site hosting market supply strictly the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other webspace hosting platform/web site hosting CP choice. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 site hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The site hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different webspace hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply a normal guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting alternative you can pick? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k web space hosting corporations in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web space hosting brand names around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the present web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly covered most web site hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign Number 1: A foolish domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be very careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how great cPanel's domain 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)
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 growing disorientated? We definitely are!

Negative Aspect No.2: The same electronic mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly enhance their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too severely.

Disadvantage Number 3: A complete lack of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we have to point out the sheer lack of a contemporary domain administration user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois information, secure the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a major predicament. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Shortcoming Number 4: Many login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the need for another login to avail of the billing transaction, domain name and technical support management menu? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web site hosting service provider. Occasionally, based on the invoicing system (especially tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting firm is utilizing, the ardent clients can end up with two extra logins (1: the billing/domain management menu; 2: the ticket support system), winding up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel departments to learn... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the Control Panel. It's a great idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting vendors:

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