How does cpanel-based hosting work?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based site hosting offers on the present web page hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insignificant business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing segment, which generates a vast number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing precisely the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offers on the whole web hosting market provide the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel site hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/web page hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "web page hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The web site hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just an ordinary fellow who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web page making processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique hosting brands all over the world will offer you the very same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the present hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly fulfilled most web hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number 1: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely careful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call 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 remove on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder structure 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)
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)

Are you getting bewildered? We clearly are!

Weak Point Number Two: The very same email folder structure

The mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin boys strongly strengthen their faith in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to screw things up too severely.

Negative Aspect No.3: A sheer absence of domain manipulation sections

Do we have to cite the absolute shortage of a contemporary domain management platform - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" menu at all. That's a vast drawback. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Drawback No.4: Multiple user login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for another login to utilize the billing transaction, domain and technical support management section? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based webspace hosting firm. Now and then, depending on the invoicing system (particularly created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting vendor is making use of, the ardent users can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing/domain administration software platform; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number Five: More than 120 web space hosting Control Panel departments to memorize... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web page hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them fast... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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