How does cpanel-based site hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offers on the contemporary web site hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small marketing segment, which generates an enormous amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying one and the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the whole webspace hosting marketplace supply exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web site hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web space hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average person who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique site hosting brands all over the world will give you strictly the same cPanel webspace hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on today's web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web site hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably fulfilled all web page hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness Number One: An imbecilic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra watchful 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 domains are quite easy to remove on the hosting server, because 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 placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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 becoming confused? We categorically are!

Weak Point Number 2: The same mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly fortify their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Negative Side Number 3: A total shortage of domain name manipulation user interfaces

Do we have to refer to the entire absence of a contemporary domain administration tool - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a vast shortcoming. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Downside Number Four: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an additional login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain and tech support administration user interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel webspace hosting corporation. Sometimes, depending on the billing transaction platform (principally created for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting distributor is utilizing, the eager customers can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain name management software; 2: the ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number 5: 120+ site hosting Control Panel sections to memorize... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the web page hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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