How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based site hosting offerings on the present-day web space hosting market are furnished by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a type of a small marketing segment, which generates a great amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing literally the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace provide one and the very same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web page hosting price tags are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/web page hosting CP choice. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200k "web page hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The website hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different hosting brand names. Suppose you are only a normal fellow who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the web space hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and online portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web page hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k web page hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique hosting brands across the world will offer you the very same cPanel web site hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on today's web page hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps answered most hosting industry requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side Number 1: A ludicrous domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very cautious not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 confused? We surely are!

Negative Sign Number Two: The same electronic mail folder setup

The mail folder structure on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums strongly enhance their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the mail server, praying not to bungle things up too gravely.

Negative Sign No.3: A thorough lack of domain name administration GUIs

Do we have to point out the complete shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a gigantic predicament. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...

Disadvantage Number Four: Many login places (min two, max 3)

How about the need for another login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain and tech support administration platform? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel webspace hosting distributor. Now and then, depending on the billing system (principally developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the zealous clients can end up with two additional login locations (1: the billing/domain management software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Sign Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel areas to get familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web page hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them rapidly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting companies:

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