How does cpanel-based website hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the present-day site hosting market are supplied by a quite inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web space hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing segment, which furnishes an immense quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web site hosting offerings on the whole web site hosting marketplace offer absolutely the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other webspace hosting platform/CP alternative. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web site hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The web hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only a normal guy who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web site development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can select? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200,000 website hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands worldwide will give you exactly the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the current web site hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly fulfilled all webspace hosting business prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number One: An idiotic domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extremely careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how great 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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming disorientated? We categorically are!

Inconvenience No.2: The very same e-mail folder system

The email folder structure on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly increase their faith in God when managing the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Negative Sign No.3: An entire shortage of domain name manipulation GUIs

Do we have to refer to the sheer absence of a modern domain name management GUI - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a major weakness. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Sign No.4: Many login places (minimum two, max 3)

How about the need for an extra login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration GUI? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web page hosting provider. At times, on the basis of the billing transaction system (particularly devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the keen customers can wind up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration software solution; 2: the ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of three user login places (including cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: 120+ site hosting Control Panel areas to learn... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them fast... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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