How does cpanel-based hosting function?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the present-day site hosting market are generated by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized business segment, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing precisely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the site hosting offers on the whole site hosting marketplace furnish one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are similar. Very similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/Control Panel alternative. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web space hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, remark that one...

200k "web hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The web page hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web site hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply a regular guy who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the site creation processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and online portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web space hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, now there are more than 200k web hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web page hosting brands across the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel site hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the contemporary web site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a mammoth strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably covered most web site hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side No.1: A moronic domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, however, be ultra cautious not to remove entirely 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). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to delete on the hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder setup 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 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 name)

Are you getting nonplussed? We clearly are!

Problem Number Two: The same e-mail folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly increase their faith in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too irreparably.

Inconvenience Number 3: A sheer deficiency of domain management menus

Do we have to cite the complete deficiency of a contemporary domain manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois information, protect the Whois details, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a great problem. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Disadvantage Number Four: Multiple login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the need for an extra login to use the billing transaction, domain and technical support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web space hosting distributor. Now and then, based on the billing tool (particularly developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is making use of, the avid clients can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: More than 120 web space hosting Control Panel sections to grasp... fast

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ menus inside the site hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better grasp them swiftly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel site hosting distributors:

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