How does cpanel-based hosting function?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on the present site hosting market are supplied by a very insignificant business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-size business niche, which supplies an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying the very same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace supply the very same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200,000 webspace hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200k "website hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just an ordinary bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website development procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and online portals . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can settle on? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web space hosting brands in the world will give you literally the same cPanel CP and platform, named differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's web page hosting market is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably answered most web page hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem Number One: A ludicrous domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)
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 growing nonplussed? We definitely are!

Predicament Number Two: The same mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly increase their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to bungle things up too badly.

Problem Number Three: A total shortage of domain administration interfaces

Do we have to refer to the entire absence of a modern domain manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois information, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a great problem. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Inconvenience Number Four: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the need for another login to utilize the invoicing, domain name and tech support management software platform? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web space hosting service provider. Now and then, depending on the invoicing platform (particularly invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the devoted users can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management user interface; 2: the ticket support interface), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty CP menus to grasp... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ departments inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better memorize them briskly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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