How does cpanel hosting work?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel website hosting offers on the current web page hosting market are furnished by a quite inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size marketing segment, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying the very same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the hosting offerings on the entire site hosting marketplace provide the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web site hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The web hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web page hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary bloke who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site development procedures and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different web site hosting brand names all over the world will give you precisely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on today's website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly met all web space hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback No.1: A moronic domain folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to erase 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 domains are quite easy to delete on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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 try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how excellent 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)

Are you getting puzzled? We doubtlessly are!

Weakness Number 2: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly increase their belief in God when managing the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too gravely.

Drawback Number Three: A sheer deficiency of domain name administration menus

Do we have to refer to the utter lack of a contemporary domain name management menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois info, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" menu at all. That's a major problem. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

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

How about the need for another login to utilize the billing transaction, domain and tech support management software solution? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based webspace hosting provider. At times, depending on the billing tool (especially built for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting corporation is making use of, the earnest customers can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain name administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Weakness Number 5: More than 120 web space hosting CP departments to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the CP. It's a marvelous idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them rapidly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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