How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based web page hosting offers on the current site hosting marketplace are generated by a quite unsubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing one and the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole web space hosting marketplace supply precisely the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/hosting CP choice. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200k site hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web site hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just an average fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website creation processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting option you can choose? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k website hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brand names around the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's web hosting market is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps answered most site hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side No.1: A stupid domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, 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, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder setup 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)
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)

Are you getting bewildered? We undeniably are!

Weak Side Number Two: The very same email folder configuration

The mail folder configuration on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly increase their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too fatally.

Negative Sign Number Three: An entire shortage of domain name management sections

Do we have to point out the complete deficiency of a modern domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois details, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a major problem. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Inconvenience Number 4: Numerous login locations (min two, max 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to use the billing transaction, domain name and technical support administration user interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting distributor. Sometimes, depending on the billing system (particularly intended for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the earnest users can wind up with two additional logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration tool; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Shortcoming Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty CP departments to grasp... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a superb idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them swiftly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting companies:

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