Explanation of cPanel Web Hosting

For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel hosting offers on the present-day website hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size business niche, which provides a great quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing the very same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire hosting market furnish the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are only an average guy who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website making procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting service providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the contemporary hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly covered most website hosting business requirements. 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 domains...

Problem No.1: A dumb domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra cautious not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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)
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 becoming puzzled? We absolutely are!

Weak Side No.2: The very same email folder configuration

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly strengthen their belief in God when coping with the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to muck things up too gravely.

Predicament Number 3: A thorough deficiency of domain name administration menus

Do we need to refer to the thorough absence of a modern domain name management menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" menu at all. That's a gigantic shortcoming. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Disadvantage No.4: Multiple login places (min 2, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to avail of the billing, domain name and technical support management section? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting provider. At times, based on the invoicing platform (especially devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting firm is availing of, the enthusiastic users can wind up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than 120 web hosting Control Panel menus to get familiar with... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 departments inside the hosting CP. It's a great idea to get to know each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them fast... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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