How does cpanel-based hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the present-day web site hosting market are furnished by a quite inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a type of a small-scale business niche, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing one and the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offerings on the entire web space hosting marketplace supply the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based site hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other webspace hosting platform/web site hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web page hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "webspace hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web page hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web space hosting brand names. Assume you are merely a regular chap who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and websites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web space hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different webspace hosting brands in the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the present-day web page hosting market is... Period.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

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

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly met all web page hosting market requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Inconvenience Number One: A foolish domain name folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web server, because 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder system 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)
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 bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The same mail folder arrangement

The mail folder structure on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when managing the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too gravely.

Negative Sign Number 3: An entire absence of domain manipulation menus

Do we need to bring up the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's an immense downside. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Negative Point Number 4: Many login places (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the need for another login to use the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration software platform? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel website hosting service provider. Now and then, based on the billing platform (especially made for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the avid customers can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing transaction/domain management platform; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Sign No.5: More than 120 CP sections to memorize... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them rapidly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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