How does cpanel-based site hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace are provided by a very insignificant business niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller webspace hosting is a kind of a small marketing segment, which provides an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering one and the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the whole hosting marketplace supply strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/web page hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 site hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...

200,000 "web space hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different webspace hosting brand names. Suppose you are only an average person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page development processes and the web space hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and sites . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k hosting suppliers in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web page hosting brand names around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered all hosting business preconditions. 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...

Inconvenience Number 1: A foolish domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very cautious not to remove 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 domains are quite simple to remove on the hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known 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 attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder structure 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 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 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)

Are you growing perplexed? We absolutely are!

Weakness No.2: The same mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder configuration on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly fortify their belief in God when coping with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too gravely.

Negative Aspect Number Three: A thorough absence of domain administration GUIs

Do we need to refer to the thorough absence of a modern domain name manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domains' Whois details, secure the Whois information, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" tool at all. That's a major problem. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Problem No.4: Multiple login locations (min two, max 3)

What about the need for another login to access the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration GUI? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web page hosting corporation. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (particularly meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting supplier is using, the zealous users can wind up with two additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration tool; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Shortcoming Number Five: More than 120 hosting Control Panel areas to pick up... quickly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's quite arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting vendors:

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