Explanation of cPanel Website Hosting

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are generated by a quite insignificant business niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business niche, which provides a huge amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying literally the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace supply one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are identical. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200,000 "web hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting brand names. Imagine you are only a normal fellow who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and web portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands worldwide will offer you precisely the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the present-day web hosting market is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a great strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly fulfilled all web hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number One: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra cautious not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new 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 erase on the hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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)
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 name)
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 getting nonplussed? We undeniably are!

Weakness No.2: The very same mail folder system

The e-mail folder structure on the server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly reinforce their faith in God when handling the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too seriously.

Downside No.3: An entire lack of domain name manipulation GUIs

Do we have to mention the absolute absence of a modern domain administration menu - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a colossal problem. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Weakness Number 4: Multiple user login places (min two, maximum three)

How about the need for an extra login to use the billing, domain and tech support administration system? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web hosting supplier. Sometimes, depending on the invoice transaction tool (especially invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the keen users can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the billing/domain administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number Five: 120+ web hosting CP menus to learn... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better learn them fast... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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