cPanel Web Hosting Explanation

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel website hosting offers on the present-day web hosting marketplace are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying precisely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting market furnish exactly the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/CP choice. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200,000 "website hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The website hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a normal chap who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the site creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200k web hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names across the world will offer you the very same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the current web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps answered most website hosting industry preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem Number 1: A foolish domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to erase entirely 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 domains are quite simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located 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. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder setup 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 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 disorientated? We positively are!

Predicament Number 2: The very same mail folder structure

The email folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to botch things up too harshly.

Downside Number Three: A thorough absence of domain administration sections

Do we need to mention the entire lack of a modern domain name manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois info, alter/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an enormous weakness. An unforgivable one, we want to point out...

Negative Sign Number 4: Many user login locations (min 2, max 3)

What about the necessity for another login to avail of the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration software? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel website hosting service provider. Sometimes, based on the invoicing transaction system (principally intended for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting supplier is utilizing, the eager customers can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing/domain name management interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Weakness Number 5: More than 120 web hosting CP areas to become acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the website hosting CP. It's a great idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them briskly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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