How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on the contemporary hosting market are furnished by a very insignificant business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing niche, which generates a huge amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing precisely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the hosting offers on the whole webspace hosting market provide one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web space hosting platform/hosting CP option. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "website hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The webspace hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web page hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average chap who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the website making procedures and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web pages . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 webspace hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names across the world will give you strictly the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a big strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly satisfied most webspace hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: A stupid domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, however, be ultra careful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
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 getting perplexed? We undoubtedly are!

Problem Number Two: The same electronic mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly increase their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to fuck things up too seriously.

Downside Number Three: A total deficiency of domain name management menus

Do we have to mention the thorough shortage of a modern domain administration platform - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a huge predicament. An unforgivable one, we want to point out...

Predicament Number 4: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, max three)

What about the demand for an extra login to avail of the billing, domain name and tech support management interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel webspace hosting service provider. At times, based on the invoicing tool (especially developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is availing of, the enthusiastic customers can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the billing/domain name administration tool; 2: the ticket support section), winding up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Problem Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web site hosting Control Panel areas to get to know... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the web page hosting CP. It's a terrific idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better grasp them fast... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web page hosting suppliers:

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