How does cpanel-based web hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite insubstantial business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small-scale business niche, which furnishes a great number of different web hosting brands, yet offering absolutely the same solutions: mostly 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 entire site hosting marketplace offer precisely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel site hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/webspace hosting CP choice. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200,000 site hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200,000 "website hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The web space hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a normal person who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site development procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200,000 web hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique web space hosting brands in the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present-day web site hosting market is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied all site hosting business prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Shortcoming Number 1: An idiotic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extra cautious not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how great cPanel's domain name 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)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 name)

Are you getting nonplussed? We positively are!

Weakness Number Two: The same electronic mail folder setup

The email folder structure on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly reinforce their belief in God when managing the mail folders on the email server, praying not to botch things up too irreparably.

Disadvantage No.3: An utter lack of domain name administration GUIs

Do we need to refer to the total deficiency of a modern domain name administration tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois information, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" menu at all. That's a great downside. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Negative Point Number 4: Many login locations (min two, maximum three)

What about the necessity for an additional login to make use of the billing, domain and technical support administration software solution? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting firm. Sometimes, based on the invoicing transaction tool (principally meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the keen clients can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than 120 site hosting CP departments to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ menus inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a fine idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's way too insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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