How does cpanel-based web hosting function?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on the present-day web hosting market are furnished by a quite insignificant business niche (when it comes to annual money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller webspace hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing the very same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the site hosting offers on the whole website hosting market offer one and the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "web page hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The web page hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply an ordinary person who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web site making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and sites . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k hosting firms out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique webspace hosting brands worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the contemporary web space hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel webspace hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps fulfilled all website hosting industry prerequisites. 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 One: A foolish domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely watchful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the web server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase 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)
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)
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 surely are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The very same e-mail folder system

The mail folder configuration on the server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly fortify their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to muck things up too badly.

Predicament Number Three: An absolute absence of domain name manipulation tools

Do we have to bring up the total deficiency of a modern domain name manipulation menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" section at all. That's a colossal predicament. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Predicament Number 4: Many user login places (min 2, maximum 3)

What about the need for an additional login to utilize the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel site hosting service provider. Occasionally, depending on the invoice transaction tool (especially designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the enthusiastic users can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain name management platform; 2: the trouble ticket support software), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: 120+ website hosting CP areas to become acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them quickly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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