How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on today's web page hosting marketplace are provided by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which supplies a big amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing the very same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the site hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace provide the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are identical. Very similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/Control Panel choice. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand site hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200,000 "web page hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The hosting "variety" and the hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely an average bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website creation procedures and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and web pages . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any site hosting variant you can opt for? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200,000 website hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique hosting brands worldwide will offer you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the current web space hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably fulfilled all web site hosting business preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number One: A laughable domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to remove on the web server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domain names, please. See for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

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

Are you getting baffled? We unquestionably are!

Weakness Number 2: The same mail folder system

The e-mail folder structure on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly enhance their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to botch things up too badly.

Problem No.3: A total shortage of domain name management options

Do we have to bring up the entire lack of a modern domain administration user interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a considerable disadvantage. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Downside Number 4: Numerous login places (minimum two, maximum three)

How about the demand for another login to use the billing transaction, domain name and tech support management section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based webspace hosting supplier. At times, depending on the invoice transaction system (particularly designed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the keen clients can wind up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain name management interface; 2: the ticket support system), winding up with a total of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point No.5: 120+ Control Panel departments to get acquainted with... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 areas inside the CP. It's a remarkable idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up fast... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel webspace hosting companies:

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