How does cpanel hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based site hosting offerings on the present-day web site hosting marketplace are provided by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which provides a vast quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing exactly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the whole hosting market supply one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel site hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200k "webspace hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The webspace hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting brand names. Assume you are only a normal bloke who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site making procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web pages . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique webspace hosting brand names in the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present-day site hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably covered most site hosting industry preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: A dumb domain folder structure

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely careful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the server, since they all are set up 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how good cPanel's domain 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)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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 perplexed? We absolutely are!

Predicament Number Two: The very same e-mail folder system

The mail folder structure on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly reinforce their belief in God when managing the email folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irreparably.

Negative Aspect Number Three: An entire shortage of domain name manipulation menus

Do we have to refer to the total deficiency of a modern domain manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois info, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a great disadvantage. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Shortcoming Number Four: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the need for another login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration tool? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web site hosting corporation. Occasionally, based on the billing system (principally created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is utilizing, the devoted customers can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing/domain name management software; 2: the trouble ticket support software), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty web site hosting CP areas to become acquainted with... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them swiftly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting firms:

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Note that one as well...
