How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web page hosting offers on today's webspace hosting marketplace are generated by a quite inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes a vast quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering exactly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offers on the entire web space hosting marketplace offer the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200,000 webspace hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200k "web site hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The website hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply a normal guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than 200,000 web page hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique web site hosting brand names worldwide will give you the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably met all site hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Point Number One: An idiotic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be very careful not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder structure 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 name)
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)

Are you growing puzzled? We positively are!

Negative Point No.2: The very same electronic mail folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly strengthen their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to mess things up too severely.

Weak Point Number 3: A complete shortage of domain name management GUIs

Do we have to mention the utter shortage of a modern domain manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois info, secure the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a vast weakness. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Shortcoming No.4: Multiple user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an additional login to use the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration menu? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting company. Sometimes, on the basis of the billing system (particularly built for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is using, the keen customers can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain management software solution; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web space hosting CP sections to grasp... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them swiftly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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