How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace are provided by a very insubstantial business segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a sort of a small marketing segment, which furnishes a big quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing strictly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web page hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace furnish precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based webspace hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/web site hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200k "web page hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The web site hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just a normal chap who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site development procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web page hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands in the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the present website hosting market is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably fulfilled all hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number 1: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to delete on the server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known 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 erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder system 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)
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 growing confused? We unquestionably are!

Shortcoming No.2: The very same mail folder structure

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly enhance their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irreparably.

Negative Sign No.3: A complete deficiency of domain name management user interfaces

Do we have to mention the sheer lack of a contemporary domain manipulation GUI - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, change domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois details, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an immense predicament. An unjustifiable one, we wish to add...

Predicament Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the necessity for another login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain and tech support administration GUI? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web space hosting company. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction system (principally tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the keen customers can end up with two extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain management menu; 2: the ticket support platform), winding up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Weakness No.5: More than 120 web space hosting CP menus to get acquainted with... fast

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ areas inside the web site hosting CP. It's a fine idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better learn them swiftly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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