How does cpanel web hosting work?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based site hosting offerings on the current web space hosting marketplace are supplied by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a type of a small business segment, which provides a big number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing literally the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the web page hosting offers on the entire web site hosting market provide precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are identical. Very much alike. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "web space hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The website hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only a normal fellow who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the web page hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web space hosting option you can select? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 site hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web page hosting brands across the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the contemporary web page hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly answered all web hosting business requirements. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience Number One: An idiotic domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra watchful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to delete on the hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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 name)
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 name)

Are you becoming disorientated? We categorically are!

Shortcoming No.2: The very same email folder system

The email folder configuration on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly reinforce their belief in God when managing the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too severely.

Shortcoming Number Three: An utter shortage of domain name administration options

Do we have to refer to the entire deficiency of a modern domain management tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a gigantic disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Side No.4: Many user login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the need for an extra login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel website hosting service provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (especially devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting corporation is utilizing, the avid clients can wind up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management menu; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty hosting CP menus to get to know... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ menus inside the web site hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's quite arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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