How does cpanel-based website hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on the present web page hosting market are furnished by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web space hosting is a type of a small-scale business segment, which supplies a big amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing absolutely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web site hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace furnish the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

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

The web site hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only a normal bloke who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web pages . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting firms out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands all over the world will offer you the very same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the present-day web page hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably met all hosting market requirements. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Inconvenience Number One: A laughable domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, however, be extremely watchful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how excellent 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)
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 name)

Are you becoming disorientated? We definitely are!

Shortcoming Number 2: The same email folder system

The e-mail folder structure on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly fortify their faith in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to screw things up too harshly.

Negative Sign Number Three: An entire deficiency of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we need to cite the total absence of a contemporary domain name manipulation interface - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, change domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a vast predicament. An unjustifiable one, we would like to point out...

Problem No.4: Many user login locations (minimum two, max 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to access the billing transaction, domain name and tech support management software platform? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web space hosting company. Now and then, on the basis of the billing transaction platform (especially tailored for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is making use of, the devoted users can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience Number Five: 120+ web space hosting Control Panel departments to get to know... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting companies:

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