How does cpanel-based website hosting work?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based site hosting offerings on the present webspace hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a type of a small business niche, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing the very same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the whole web site hosting marketplace supply precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based webspace hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/web page hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200,000 "hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The web space hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an ordinary chap who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web pages . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, now there are more than 200k web hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different hosting brand names worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel webspace hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on the present webspace hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based site hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps satisfied most site hosting market preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Predicament Number One: A dumb domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extremely attentive not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next 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 remove on the web server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite 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 remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder setup 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)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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 positively are!

Negative Side No.2: The same mail folder arrangement

The mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly fortify their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to bungle things up too fatally.

Shortcoming Number Three: An absolute absence of domain name manipulation user interfaces

Do we need to mention the entire deficiency of a modern domain name management menu - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois information, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a great problem. An unforgivable one, we want to add...

Shortcoming Number Four: Numerous login places (min two, max three)

How about the demand for an additional login to utilize the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration section? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel site hosting provider. Now and then, depending on the invoicing transaction system (principally made for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting provider is making use of, the keen clients can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain management interface; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty webspace hosting CP menus to get to know... promptly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a fantastic idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them fast... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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