How does cpanel web site hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offerings on the present site hosting marketplace are generated by a quite unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering literally the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole site hosting market provide the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web site hosting Control Panel option. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "webspace hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web page hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are just a regular bloke who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting option you can decide upon? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands worldwide will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present web space hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably fulfilled all web site hosting industry demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number One: A moronic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)
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 growing disorientated? We surely are!

Negative Sign Number 2: The same mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly reinforce their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too severely.

Problem Number Three: An entire lack of domain name administration options

Do we have to mention the utter absence of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois details, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a big inconvenience. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Shortcoming Number Four: Numerous login places (min 2, max 3)

How about the need for an extra login to access the billing transaction, domain and tech support management system? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel webspace hosting service provider. Sometimes, based on the billing tool (particularly devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting vendor is availing of, the zealous clients can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with a total of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number Five: More than 120 Control Panel menus to learn... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up quickly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting vendors:

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