How does cpanel-based web site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based webspace hosting offerings on the present web space hosting marketplace are generated by a very insignificant business segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small business niche, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing exactly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the site hosting offers on the entire hosting marketplace furnish precisely the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web site hosting platform/web page hosting CP alternative. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200,000 "web site hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an average fellow who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the website development procedures and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites . Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web page hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different webspace hosting brands across the world will offer you the very same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the present webspace hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly covered all site hosting business prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign No.1: A foolish domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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 domains, please. Decide for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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 name)
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)
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 confused? We clearly are!

Weak Side Number 2: The same e-mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder structure on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly enhance their faith in God when tackling the email folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to bungle things up too irreparably.

Weak Side Number 3: A total shortage of domain manipulation user interfaces

Do we need to point out the entire shortage of a contemporary domain name management tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domains' Whois details, protect the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" interface at all. That's a colossal drawback. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Negative Point Number Four: Multiple user login places (min 2, maximum three)

How about the demand for an extra login to access the billing transaction, domain and tech support management tool? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting corporation. Now and then, based on the billing transaction system (principally built for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting firm is availing of, the devoted customers can end up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: 120+ web hosting Control Panel areas to memorize... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better get to know them fast... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based hosting corporations:

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