How does cpanel hosting function?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present-day web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web space hosting is a type of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes a great quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying literally the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web space hosting offerings on the whole web space hosting marketplace provide exactly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting prices are identical. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web site hosting platform/web site hosting CP choice. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "webspace hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The webspace hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely a normal guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and online portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web page hosting option you can settle on? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting companies in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique web page hosting brand names worldwide will give you absolutely the same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the present-day web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably answered all site hosting industry preconditions. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side Number One: An imbecilic domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra careful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domains, please. Determine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder setup 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 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 becoming confused? We certainly are!

Weak Point Number 2: The very same email folder system

The electronic mail folder structure on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys strongly strengthen their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to muck things up too irretrievably.

Weak Point Number 3: An absolute deficiency of domain name administration options

Do we need to bring up the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain name management tool - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois info, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" tool at all. That's a major problem. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Problem No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to access the invoicing, domain name and technical support management software solution? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel website hosting distributor. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing tool (especially made for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is availing of, the earnest users can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty web space hosting Control Panel departments to learn... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 sections inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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