How does cpanel website hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based webspace hosting offers on the present-day web space hosting market are supplied by a very unsubstantial business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-sized business niche, which supplies a huge quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying exactly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offerings on the whole hosting market furnish absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting prices are identical. Very much alike. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/web page hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mark that one...

200,000 "web site hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The web space hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web space hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a normal fellow who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site development processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web pages . Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any web site hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different webspace hosting brand names across the world will give you exactly the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the present-day website hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably fulfilled most web site hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback No.1: An imbecilic domain name folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra attentive not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder structure 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 name)
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 name)

Are you getting baffled? We unquestionably are!

Downside Number 2: The same email folder structure

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly fortify their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the mail server, praying not to muck things up too badly.

Downside Number 3: A sheer lack of domain management menus

Do we need to cite the thorough lack of a contemporary domain name manipulation platform - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois information, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" section at all. That's a vast inconvenience. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Predicament Number Four: Numerous user login places (min 2, max three)

How about the demand for another login to utilize the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration system? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel hosting supplier. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing transaction tool (principally built for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is utilizing, the enthusiastic customers can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain management section; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with an aggregate of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number 5: 120+ web site hosting CP areas to get familiar with... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ departments inside the Control Panel. It's a superb idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them briskly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting distributors:

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