How does cpanel hosting function?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on today's website hosting marketplace are supplied by a very inconsiderable business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing niche, which supplies an immense quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing strictly the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web site hosting offerings on the whole web page hosting market provide strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/webspace hosting CP alternative. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200k "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an ordinary bloke who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the site creation processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and websites . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, now there are more than 200k web page hosting firms out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web site hosting brands across the world will give you the very same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the current web space hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably satisfied most web site hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number One: A laughable domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very cautious not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call 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 erase on the server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here is situated)
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 name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting disorientated? We doubtlessly are!

Downside Number Two: The same email folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too harshly.

Disadvantage Number Three: A thorough absence of domain administration menus

Do we have to bring up the absolute shortage of a modern domain manipulation menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a great problem. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Weak Side No.4: Multiple login locations (minimum two, maximum three)

What about the need for another login to make use of the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration interface? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based hosting vendor. Now and then, based on the billing system (principally devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting provider is using, the avid users can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management system; 2: the ticket support system), winding up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number 5: More than 120 web hosting CP menus to become familiar with... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ menus inside the web page hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting companies:

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