How does cpanel web hosting work?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based web site hosting offerings on the contemporary web page hosting marketplace are furnished by a very unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing segment, which supplies an immense quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying the very same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire webspace hosting marketplace provide the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web page hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/webspace hosting CP choice. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, note that one...

200,000 "web page hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The website hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary person who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any webspace hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique site hosting brands across the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly answered most site hosting market prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament Number One: An imbecilic domain name folder system

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra careful not to erase 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). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder configuration 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 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 becoming perplexed? We unquestionably are!

Shortcoming Number 2: The same e-mail folder setup

The e-mail folder structure on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly increase their belief in God when dealing with the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Downside Number Three: A sheer absence of domain management interfaces

Do we have to bring up the thorough shortage of a modern domain management user interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois info, secure the Whois details, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a mammoth predicament. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Weakness No.4: Multiple user login locations (min two, max 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management tool? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web page hosting corporation. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing tool (principally designed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the earnest users can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the billing/domain name management section; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty web site hosting Control Panel menus to get familiar with... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better grasp them quickly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based site hosting service providers:

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Note that one too...
