How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web site hosting offers on the contemporary web hosting market are furnished by a very unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a sort of a small-size business niche, which furnishes a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering the very same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offerings on the whole hosting market furnish one and the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel site hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/Control Panel option. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "web space hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The site hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply an average guy who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site making procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and web pages . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any hosting option you can decide upon? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k site hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web space hosting brands around the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel web page hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on today's web site hosting market is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps answered most webspace hosting market requirements. 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...

Inconvenience Number One: A moronic domain folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be very watchful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the web server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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 name)
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)

Are you becoming bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Negative Sign No.2: The same mail folder system

The e-mail folder arrangement on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly enhance their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too severely.

Drawback Number Three: An absolute lack of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we have to cite the total deficiency of a modern domain management menu - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois info, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an immense downside. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Inconvenience No.4: Many login places (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the necessity for another login to access the billing, domain name and technical support administration software? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web site hosting company. Occasionally, based on the invoicing tool (particularly devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is using, the ardent clients can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the billing/domain administration system; 2: the ticket support GUI), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament No.5: More than a hundred and twenty web site hosting Control Panel menus to become familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ departments inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them fast... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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