How does cpanel-based hosting function?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on the current site hosting market are furnished by a very insubstantial business segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-size business segment, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing exactly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the site hosting offers on the whole site hosting market supply one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web space hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "web space hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web page hosting brand names. Imagine you are only a regular chap who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and web pages . Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web space hosting option you can select? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200,000 webspace hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique site hosting brand names worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present-day web page hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably satisfied all web space hosting market requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side Number 1: A stupid domain folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra watchful not to erase completely 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
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 name)

Are you growing bewildered? We surely are!

Predicament Number Two: The very same e-mail folder arrangement

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chums strongly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too seriously.

Disadvantage No.3: An utter lack of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we have to point out the absolute lack of a modern domain management tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois details, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" user interface at all. That's an enormous disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Side Number Four: Many login places (minimum two, maximum three)

How about the demand for an additional login to use the invoice transaction, domain and technical support administration platform? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web space hosting company. Sometimes, on the basis of the billing tool (especially invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting vendor is making use of, the keen users can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Weak Side Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting Control Panel departments to pick up... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the web space hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better memorize them rapidly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web site hosting suppliers:

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