How does cpanel-based website hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel site hosting offerings on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which furnishes a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering strictly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web space hosting offers on the entire webspace hosting marketplace furnish exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200,000 "web site hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The webspace hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different webspace hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an ordinary bloke who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any site hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k web site hosting companies in existence. Officially. 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 worldwide will give you precisely the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web site hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly covered all webspace hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number One: A dumb domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extremely attentive not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, 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 server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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. Observe for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder arrangement 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 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 getting baffled? We definitely are!

Negative Aspect Number Two: The very same e-mail folder system

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to botch things up too seriously.

Shortcoming No.3: A sheer absence of domain management tools

Do we need to point out the absolute lack of a contemporary domain administration tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a mammoth drawback. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Many login locations (min 2, maximum three)

How about the demand for an extra login to access the billing, domain name and technical support management system? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web space hosting corporation. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing platform (principally tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is utilizing, the earnest users can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management tool; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Downside Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty Control Panel sections to become familiar with... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the site hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them quickly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web site hosting service providers:

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