How does cpanel website hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel hosting offerings on the contemporary hosting marketplace are provided by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web site hosting is a sort of a small-sized business segment, which supplies an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing literally the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web site hosting offerings on the entire web site hosting marketplace provide one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel site hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. So, there is only one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200k "web page hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The web hosting "variety" and the site hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different site hosting brand names. Assume you are only an average guy who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page development processes and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any webspace hosting option you can select? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 web site hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different webspace hosting brands in the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's webspace hosting market is... Period.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably answered all web space hosting market prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem No.1: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra watchful not to remove 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). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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)

Are you growing confused? We clearly are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their belief in God when managing the e-mail folders on the email server, hoping not to muck things up too severely.

Negative Sign Number Three: An entire shortage of domain manipulation options

Do we have to refer to the complete absence of a modern domain name manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois information, protect the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a mammoth drawback. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Inconvenience Number Four: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to avail of the invoicing, domain name and tech support management user interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web hosting service provider. Now and then, on the basis of the billing platform (principally made for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is using, the devoted users can wind up with two additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain management interface; 2: the ticket support software), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Sign Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty webspace hosting CP menus to become acquainted with... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them swiftly... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting firms:

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