How does cpanel-based web hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web space hosting offers on today's web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web space hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering one and the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offerings on the entire hosting market supply the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based site hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other site hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. So, there is merely one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web space hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "webspace hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The web hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply a regular person who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website creation processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and online portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting alternative you can select? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 web space hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different web site hosting brand names all over the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the contemporary hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a great strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based site hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied all web space hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number One: A laughable domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely watchful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to remove on the server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is located)
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 name)

Are you becoming confused? We absolutely are!

Shortcoming Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums firmly fortify their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too gravely.

Predicament No.3: An entire deficiency of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we have to cite the complete shortage of a contemporary domain name management tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois details, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" menu at all. That's a vast drawback. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Negative Point No.4: Multiple user login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the demand for an additional login to utilize the billing, domain and technical support administration interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web space hosting distributor. Now and then, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (especially conceived for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting distributor is utilizing, the keen customers can wind up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain administration platform; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Negative Sign No.5: 120+ web site hosting Control Panel areas to learn... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better learn them rapidly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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