How does cpanel-based site hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel web site hosting offerings on the contemporary web space hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which provides a vast amount of different web hosting brands, yet providing the very same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web site hosting offerings on the entire webspace hosting marketplace furnish exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are identical. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/webspace hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "webspace hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The web page hosting "variety" and the hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different site hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an average bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any site hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different hosting brand names worldwide will offer you strictly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the present-day site hosting marketplace is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps met all web site hosting market requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number 1: A moronic domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra attentive not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)

Are you growing disorientated? We certainly are!

Weak Side Number 2: The very same mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly reinforce their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too seriously.

Weak Point No.3: A complete shortage of domain name management user interfaces

Do we need to point out the sheer deficiency of a contemporary domain name administration tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois info, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's an enormous disadvantage. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Side Number Four: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the need for an extra login to use the billing transaction, domain and tech support administration menu? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel site hosting firm. At times, on the basis of the billing system (especially made for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is making use of, the keen customers can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing/domain name administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), ending up with a total of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to grasp... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the web page hosting CP. It's a superb idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them fast... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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