How does cpanel web hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on the present-day web page hosting marketplace are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing segment, which provides a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing precisely the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web page hosting offers on the entire web site hosting market provide literally the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 web site hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200k "webspace hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The web hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just an average person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any webspace hosting option you can decide upon? Sure there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting companies in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different webspace hosting brands around the world will give you the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the current hosting market is... Period.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled all hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number 1: An imbecilic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra cautious not to erase 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 remove on the web hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming nonplussed? We absolutely are!

Disadvantage Number Two: The same mail folder structure

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly enhance their faith in God when tackling the email folders on the email server, praying not to fuck things up too fatally.

Disadvantage Number 3: An utter absence of domain administration tools

Do we need to bring up the utter lack of a modern domain management user interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois info, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a major downside. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Downside Number 4: Multiple login locations (min two, max 3)

What about the need for an additional login to access the invoicing, domain name and technical support management platform? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel site hosting vendor. Now and then, based on the billing transaction tool (especially built for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the zealous clients can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain name management GUI; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: More than 120 website hosting CP areas to grasp... briskly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 departments inside the website hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them quickly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting corporations:

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