How does cpanel-based hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on today's webspace hosting market are generated by a very insignificant marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which supplies an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing literally the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the entire site hosting market supply one and the very same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other webspace hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 web page hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

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

The web site hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a regular chap who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting firms in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web space hosting brands all over the world will offer you the very same cPanel web site hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the current website hosting market is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably met most webspace hosting industry demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number 1: A moronic domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely watchful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to delete on the hosting server, since they all are set up 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 try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming bewildered? We undeniably are!

Problem No.2: The very same e-mail folder structure

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly increase their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to screw things up too harshly.

Downside Number Three: An entire lack of domain name management menus

Do we need to refer to the utter deficiency of a contemporary domain management tool - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois info, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an immense predicament. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Multiple user login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the need for another login to make use of the billing transaction, domain name and tech support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting provider. At times, based on the invoicing transaction tool (principally developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting supplier is making use of, the enthusiastic customers can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support interface), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Downside Number Five: More than 120 hosting Control Panel sections to learn... promptly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ departments inside the web space hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them promptly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting corporations:

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