cPanel Hosting Explanation

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are provided by a very insignificant business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-size business niche, which furnishes a big number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing one and the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole website hosting marketplace supply literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting CP option. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200,000 "web hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely an average person who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting option you can settle on? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting service providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different web hosting brand names worldwide will give you precisely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a big strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled most website hosting business requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number 1: A foolish domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 name)
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 becoming disorientated? We surely are!

Drawback Number 2: The same electronic mail folder configuration

The email folder arrangement on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly fortify their faith in God when tackling the email folders on the email server, praying not to mess things up too fatally.

Negative Point Number 3: A complete absence of domain management GUIs

Do we have to cite the complete absence of a contemporary domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois info, secure the Whois details, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" menu at all. That's a major weakness. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Negative Point Number Four: Multiple user login locations (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the demand for an additional login to access the invoicing, domain and tech support management menu? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting corporation. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing tool (principally intended for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the enthusiastic clients can end up with two extra login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain name management section; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP menus to pick up... promptly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them rapidly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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