How does cpanel site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web site hosting offers on the contemporary site hosting marketplace are generated by a quite unsubstantial business segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-sized marketing segment, which supplies an immense number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing absolutely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the web site hosting offerings on the entire webspace hosting market furnish one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web page hosting platform/web hosting CP option. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200,000 "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The site hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary chap who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web space hosting brands worldwide will give you exactly the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel-based web site hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled all web page hosting business prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point No.1: A moronic domain name folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very cautious not to erase fully 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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. Decide for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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)

Are you getting perplexed? We certainly are!

Inconvenience Number Two: The very same mail folder arrangement

The email folder structure on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly strengthen their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Negative Sign No.3: A sheer absence of domain name manipulation menus

Do we need to point out the absolute lack of a modern domain management platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois details, change/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a considerable predicament. An unforgivable one, we wish to add...

Inconvenience No.4: Many login locations (minimum two, maximum three)

What about the need for an extra login to avail of the billing, domain name and technical support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting supplier. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (particularly made for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is using, the ardent clients can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration tool; 2: the ticket support software solution), winding up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Drawback No.5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel departments to grasp... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web space hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them fast... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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