How does cpanel website hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel hosting offerings on the present-day site hosting marketplace are provided by a quite inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a sort of a small-size business segment, which provides a big quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying the very same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire hosting market supply exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web page hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "site hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web site hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web site hosting brand names. Assume you are merely an ordinary person who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web pages . Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any site hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different site hosting brand names around the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably covered all web hosting market preconditions. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number 1: A dumb domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be very 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 very simple to erase on the web server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite 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. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)
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 name)

Are you becoming puzzled? We doubtlessly are!

Inconvenience Number Two: The very same mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder structure on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly fortify their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too badly.

Negative Side Number Three: A thorough shortage of domain name management tools

Do we need to bring up the utter lack of a modern domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" tool at all. That's a great drawback. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Shortcoming Number 4: Multiple user login places (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the need for an additional login to utilize the billing, domain and technical support administration software solution? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel site hosting corporation. Now and then, based on the billing transaction tool (principally tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting vendor is availing of, the avid clients can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty webspace hosting Control Panel departments to grasp... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to learn each of them. And you'd better memorize them fast... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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