How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present-day hosting marketplace are provided by a very insubstantial business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which supplies an immense number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering exactly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the webspace hosting offerings on the entire site hosting marketplace supply literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel site hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200k "webspace hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web space hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different webspace hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply an average bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website development procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web space hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k web page hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique hosting brands around the world will offer you the very same cPanel hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on today's web space hosting market is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably covered all web hosting market demands. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience No.1: A ludicrous domain name folder system

If you have two or more domains, however, be ultra cautious not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is located)
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 name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting puzzled? We unquestionably are!

Disadvantage Number Two: The very same e-mail folder structure

The mail folder configuration on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly fortify their faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too irretrievably.

Negative Side No.3: An utter absence of domain name management options

Do we have to cite the complete lack of a modern domain name administration user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois information, secure the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" section at all. That's a colossal predicament. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Point Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the demand for an extra login to access the billing, domain and technical support management platform? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web space hosting provider. Now and then, depending on the billing transaction system (particularly created for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting service provider is using, the keen customers can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management menu; 2: the trouble ticket support software), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Side No.5: More than 120 web site hosting CP sections to grasp... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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