How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insignificant marketing segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a type of a small-scale business niche, which supplies a great amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering literally the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web page hosting offers on the entire webspace hosting market furnish precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200k "web space hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The site hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply an ordinary bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and online portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web page hosting alternative you can opt for? Of course there is, at present there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brand names all over the world will give you precisely the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, named differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on today's hosting marketplace is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly satisfied most website hosting business requirements. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side No.1: An idiotic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to erase on the server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous 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 delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)
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 certainly are!

Negative Aspect No.2: The same mail folder arrangement

The mail folder arrangement on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin boys strongly increase their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too severely.

Shortcoming Number 3: An utter deficiency of domain name manipulation options

Do we have to cite the complete lack of a contemporary domain name manipulation platform - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a great problem. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Predicament Number Four: Many user login places (minimum two, max three)

How about the demand for another login to use the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management GUI? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web site hosting corporation. At times, depending on the invoicing transaction system (principally conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting service provider is using, the ardent users can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing/domain name management menu; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than 120 hosting CP sections to grasp... quickly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ areas inside the web page hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to learn each of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting service providers:

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