How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web page hosting offerings on the current site hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a sort of a small-size business niche, which supplies a great amount of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying precisely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offers on the whole website hosting marketplace offer one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based site hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web space hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "webspace hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only a regular fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the web site hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting variant you can opt for? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k web page hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique webspace hosting brands across the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the current webspace hosting market is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math reveals that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably fulfilled all web hosting business demands. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness No.1: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra watchful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder system 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 name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming puzzled? We definitely are!

Negative Point Number Two: The same email folder system

The electronic mail folder structure on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly increase their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too gravely.

Drawback No.3: A total deficiency of domain manipulation user interfaces

Do we have to bring up the absolute shortage of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois information, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" section at all. That's a big inconvenience. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Negative Side Number 4: Many user login locations (min 2, max three)

What about the demand for an extra login to access the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management software platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel site hosting distributor. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing tool (principally meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the devoted users can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration system; 2: the ticket support software solution), winding up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty site hosting Control Panel departments to memorize... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them promptly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting vendors:

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