How does cpanel web site hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on the present-day web space hosting market are furnished by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing segment, which furnishes a huge quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying absolutely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offerings on the entire web space hosting market provide literally the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting price tags are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 web page hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200k "web space hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The web hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply a normal guy who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site creation procedures and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and web pages . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web space hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200k site hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web space hosting brands worldwide will give you strictly the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the contemporary website hosting market is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps answered most webspace hosting business requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Shortcoming Number One: A foolish domain folder structure

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra careful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to 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 remove on the server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming confused? We positively are!

Predicament Number 2: The same email folder setup

The mail folder configuration on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly enhance their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to screw things up too irreparably.

Weakness Number 3: An absolute absence of domain name administration GUIs

Do we need to bring up the total deficiency of a contemporary domain manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a major problem. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Weak Side No.4: Multiple user login places (minimum 2, max three)

How about the necessity for another login to access the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration software solution? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting supplier. At times, based on the billing tool (principally invented for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the avid customers can end up with two additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management interface; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect No.5: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting CP areas to get acquainted with... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ departments inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better pick them up promptly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel site hosting firms:

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