How does cpanel hosting work?

For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the present-day hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insignificant marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small-scale business segment, which generates a huge number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web site hosting offerings on the entire web site hosting marketplace provide the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The website hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web page hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely a regular guy who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the site making processes and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web space hosting alternative you can pick? Of course there is, at present there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands across the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the present webspace hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered most webspace hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number 1: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the web hosting 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 placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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)

Are you getting bewildered? We certainly are!

Negative Side Number Two: The same electronic mail folder setup

The mail folder configuration on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums firmly fortify their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too gravely.

Disadvantage No.3: An entire deficiency of domain name administration sections

Do we need to point out the sheer deficiency of a modern domain name manipulation menu - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a vast problem. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...

Predicament Number Four: Numerous user login places (min two, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to utilize the billing transaction, domain and technical support management GUI? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web space hosting vendor. At times, based on the billing system (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is availing of, the ardent clients can end up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain name administration platform; 2: the ticket support menu), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming Number Five: 120+ web site hosting Control Panel sections to memorize... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the site hosting CP. It's a great idea to become familiar with each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them rapidly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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