How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel site hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting market are furnished by a very insubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual money flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which provides an immense number of different web hosting brands, yet supplying absolutely the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting market supply strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other webspace hosting platform/site hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The site hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary person who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web space hosting alternative you can choose? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique webspace hosting brands all over the world will offer you the very same cPanel web site hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the current website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered most web hosting industry prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number 1: A stupid domain folder system

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra watchful not to delete entirely 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 domains are quite simple to delete on the web hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 nonplussed? We undoubtedly are!

Predicament No.2: The very same e-mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly strengthen their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too seriously.

Predicament Number Three: A total lack of domain name administration GUIs

Do we have to point out the entire deficiency of a modern domain manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois information, secure the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's an immense disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Side Number 4: Multiple login locations (min two, max three)

How about the need for another login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support management GUI? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel hosting corporation. At times, based on the billing tool (particularly intended for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the ardent users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration GUI; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number 5: More than 120 web site hosting Control Panel departments to become familiar with... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ departments inside the CP. It's a fabulous idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting firms:

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