How does cpanel-based site hosting work?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the present hosting market are provided by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which generates an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing precisely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the whole hosting marketplace supply the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/hosting CP alternative. So, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, remark that one...

200k "website hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The hosting "variety" and the site hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web page hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely an ordinary guy who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site development processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and online portals . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web page hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, now there are more than 200k web space hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names around the world will offer you the same cPanel web site hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the current webspace hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

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

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps answered most web hosting market requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point Number 1: A dumb domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder setup 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)
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 unquestionably are!

Disadvantage Number Two: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The mail folder structure on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly strengthen their belief in God when handling the email folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to botch things up too harshly.

Weak Point Number Three: An absolute shortage of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we need to point out the utter deficiency of a contemporary domain name manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois information, protect the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a major downside. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Problem No.4: Many login locations (min two, max 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to access the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration software platform? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web page hosting corporation. At times, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (particularly invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is using, the earnest clients can wind up with two extra logins (1: the billing/domain name management interface; 2: the ticket support tool), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Sign No.5: 120+ website hosting CP departments to get to know... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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