How does cpanel hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on the present-day web site hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-sized business niche, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting brands, yet supplying exactly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting market furnish absolutely the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/web page hosting CP choice. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web site hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, note that one...

200,000 "web space hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The site hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web site hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only a regular fellow who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site making procedures and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web space hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands all over the world will give you the very same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the present site hosting market is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a mammoth strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps answered all web space hosting industry preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number One: A ludicrous domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be very cautious not to erase 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very 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 try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder system is:

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

Are you growing puzzled? We undoubtedly are!

Problem Number 2: The same e-mail folder arrangement

The email folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly enhance their faith in God when tackling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too seriously.

Disadvantage Number 3: An utter absence of domain manipulation menus

Do we have to bring up the sheer shortage of a modern domain name manipulation menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois details, protect the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an immense drawback. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Weakness Number 4: Multiple login locations (min 2, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to utilize the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration system? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web space hosting supplier. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (especially developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the eager users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing/domain name management software solution; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Downside Number Five: 120+ web page hosting Control Panel areas to get familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get to know them quickly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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