How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel hosting offerings on the present-day web hosting market are supplied by a quite insignificant business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a sort of a small business niche, which furnishes a big number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing absolutely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace furnish precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/hosting CP option. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

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

The webspace hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web site hosting brand names. Assume you are merely an ordinary fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site development procedures and the webspace hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and websites . Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting service providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands worldwide will offer you literally the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the current web space hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps fulfilled most webspace hosting industry requirements. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number One: A moronic domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra watchful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder configuration 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 growing nonplussed? We certainly are!

Downside Number 2: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums firmly increase their belief in God when coping with the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too irreparably.

Weak Side Number Three: An utter absence of domain administration user interfaces

Do we need to cite the utter shortage of a contemporary domain management GUI - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois details, secure the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" section at all. That's an enormous predicament. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...

Weak Point No.4: Numerous login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the necessity for an extra login to utilize the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management section? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based webspace hosting vendor. Now and then, depending on the billing platform (principally invented for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the keen clients can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration platform; 2: the ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Shortcoming Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting CP departments to get familiar with... fast

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ sections inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them promptly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web space hosting suppliers:

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