How does cpanel web hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on the current site hosting market are furnished by a quite unsubstantial business niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing niche, which provides a big quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet offering one and the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offers on the whole web site hosting market offer the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based webspace hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/site hosting CP option. So, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web site hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "site hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different site hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an average guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and online portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting alternative you can pick? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 web space hosting firms in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different webspace hosting brands across the world 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 huge the variety on the present-day web site hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly fulfilled most web space hosting industry demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number One: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extremely attentive 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). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to erase on the hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular 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 try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder structure 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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming baffled? We categorically are!

Weak Side Number Two: The same electronic mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly reinforce their belief in God when managing the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too harshly.

Negative Sign No.3: A sheer lack of domain administration sections

Do we need to bring up the utter deficiency of a modern domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois information, protect the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a colossal predicament. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Weakness No.4: Many user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the need for an additional login to use the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration interface? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web page hosting corporation. Occasionally, depending on the billing transaction platform (particularly tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is utilizing, the zealous customers can wind up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Negative Sign No.5: More than one hundred and twenty webspace hosting Control Panel sections to get acquainted with... swiftly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the web page hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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