How does cpanel web site hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web site hosting offerings on today's web page hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing niche, which furnishes a great number of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering exactly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offers on the entire web page hosting marketplace offer precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web space hosting platform/CP choice. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200,000 "web space hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting brand names. Imagine you are only a regular fellow who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site creation processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any web hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200k hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different webspace hosting brands across the world will give you literally the same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly met most website 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...

Negative Point Number 1: A foolish domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra watchful not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known 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 domain names, please. Determine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder system 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 name)

Are you getting confused? We absolutely are!

Inconvenience No.2: The same email folder configuration

The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly increase their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too badly.

Weakness Number Three: An utter absence of domain manipulation tools

Do we need to cite the entire shortage of a modern domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois information, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a vast shortcoming. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Problem No.4: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, max three)

How about the need for an additional login to utilize the billing, domain and technical support management software platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting corporation. Sometimes, based on the invoicing transaction platform (especially intended for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is utilizing, the ardent users can wind up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number Five: 120+ Control Panel menus to get familiar with... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them quickly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web site hosting corporations:

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