How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based web page hosting offers on the current hosting market are provided by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a type of a small-size marketing segment, which provides a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing strictly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the webspace hosting offers on the whole web space hosting marketplace furnish literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other webspace hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web space hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web space hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The web hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web site hosting brand names. Suppose you are only an ordinary guy who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page creation processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web pages . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200,000 web space hosting service providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique site hosting brand names in the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present-day webspace hosting market is... Period.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably answered most web space hosting industry demands. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side Number 1: An idiotic domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very cautious not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the server, because they all are set up 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. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 name)
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)

Are you growing baffled? We categorically are!

Predicament No.2: The same e-mail folder arrangement

The email folder structure on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly fortify their belief in God when handling the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.

Inconvenience Number Three: An entire deficiency of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we need to mention the total absence of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois information, protect the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a vast inconvenience. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...

Negative Point Number Four: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, maximum three)

How about the need for an extra login to use the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration platform? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel webspace hosting company. At times, on the basis of the billing tool (particularly built for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the avid clients can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel areas to pick up... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better memorize them quickly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting service providers:

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