How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web site hosting offers on the present web site hosting market are supplied by a very insignificant business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering literally the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web site hosting offers on the whole webspace hosting marketplace supply the very same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web page hosting CP option. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web space hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200k "web hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The web page hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are just a regular person who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page creation procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200,000 web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands worldwide will give you the very same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the present-day website hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a big stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps fulfilled most web space hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number One: A ludicrous domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extra careful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to delete on the web server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 becoming bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Drawback Number Two: The same electronic mail folder structure

The mail folder structure on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin boys strongly strengthen their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too badly.

Negative Sign Number 3: A sheer shortage of domain name administration sections

Do we need to bring up the total shortage of a modern domain name manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a mammoth shortcoming. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Many user login locations (min 2, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to access the billing, domain and tech support management software? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting vendor. At times, based on the billing transaction tool (particularly devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting vendor is making use of, the avid users can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain name management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel departments to get to know... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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