How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on today's site hosting marketplace are provided by a very insignificant business segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web space hosting is a kind of a small-scale business niche, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying the very same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the hosting offerings on the entire web page hosting market furnish exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting CP choice. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "web space hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The web hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web space hosting brand names. Assume you are merely an average bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website creation processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and online portals . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web page hosting option you can choose? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting firms out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brand names around the world will offer you the very same cPanel CP and platform, branded differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the current web site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a great strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied all website hosting business requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: A ludicrous domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very watchful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete 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 placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
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)
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 growing perplexed? We clearly are!

Problem Number Two: The very same e-mail folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their belief in God when managing the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Disadvantage Number 3: A thorough shortage of domain name manipulation sections

Do we have to point out the thorough absence of a contemporary domain name management interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois information, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" tool at all. That's a vast disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Disadvantage No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, max three)

How about the need for another login to make use of the billing, domain name and tech support management GUI? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based website hosting supplier. At times, depending on the invoicing tool (principally created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is using, the ardent users can wind up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), ending up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number Five: More than 120 site hosting CP areas to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a superb idea to become familiar with each one of them. And you'd better grasp them quickly... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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