How does cpanel-based site hosting work?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based web page hosting offers on the present-day web page hosting marketplace are generated by a quite inconsiderable business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small business niche, which supplies an immense quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offers on the whole web space hosting marketplace supply the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web page hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other webspace hosting platform/web site hosting Control Panel option. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200,000 webspace hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

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

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web space hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average guy who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web site creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting alternative you can select? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k hosting companies in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names worldwide will give you strictly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the present site hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps covered all webspace hosting industry preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Side Number One: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra attentive not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to erase on the server, since 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. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting disorientated? We undeniably are!

Weak Point Number 2: The same mail folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums strongly strengthen their faith in God when managing the email folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too seriously.

Negative Side Number Three: A thorough lack of domain management options

Do we need to cite the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain administration user interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domains' Whois details, shield the Whois details, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an immense downside. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Drawback No.4: Numerous login places (min two, maximum three)

How about the need for an extra login to use the billing, domain name and tech support management menu? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web page hosting distributor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (particularly conceived for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the earnest clients can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management menu; 2: the ticket support platform), winding up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than 120 web site hosting CP sections to memorize... quickly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ sections inside the web space hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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