How does cpanel-based hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-scale business niche, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering exactly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web space hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace supply the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "web space hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The web site hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only a regular fellow who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and online portals . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different web site hosting brands in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the present website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps answered most web page hosting market preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Point Number One: A laughable domain name folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra watchful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to 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 remove on the web server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder system 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 name)
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 name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 name)

Are you getting confused? We positively are!

Weak Point Number Two: The very same email folder system

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes firmly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too irretrievably.

Problem No.3: A sheer absence of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we have to bring up the entire shortage of a modern domain name management tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois information, protect the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a huge problem. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Inconvenience No.4: Numerous login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the necessity for an extra login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support administration tool? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web page hosting company. Occasionally, depending on the invoice transaction tool (principally meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is using, the enthusiastic customers can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration section; 2: the ticket support platform), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than 120 hosting CP sections to pick up... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ menus inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to get familiar with each of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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