How does cpanel-based site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web page hosting offers on today's web hosting market are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-size business segment, which provides a huge number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing strictly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the webspace hosting offers on the whole site hosting market furnish absolutely the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based webspace hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web site hosting platform/web hosting CP option. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "webspace hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely branded

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely a regular chap who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website development processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and sites . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web space hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 web page hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique webspace hosting brands worldwide will give you the very same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on today's web site hosting marketplace is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps satisfied all web space hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number One: A stupid domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely watchful not to erase entirely 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 very easy to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing nonplussed? We unquestionably are!

Predicament No.2: The very same mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder configuration on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Shortcoming No.3: A total deficiency of domain name management tools

Do we need to cite the utter lack of a modern domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois details, shield the Whois information, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a gigantic problem. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Aspect No.4: Numerous login places (min 2, max 3)

What about the demand for another login to access the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web space hosting company. At times, depending on the invoicing platform (especially intended for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is utilizing, the enthusiastic clients can end up with two additional login places (1: the billing/domain management GUI; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Weakness Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web page hosting CP departments to pick up... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to pick up each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting service providers:

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