How Does cPanel Hosting Function?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on today's web hosting market are generated by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small business niche, which provides a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing literally the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish the very same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "web hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just an ordinary person who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web pages. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brand names around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the contemporary web hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly answered all web hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number 1: A foolish domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web server, since they all are created 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 located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is placed)
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 name)
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 name)

Are you growing puzzled? We definitely are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys strongly fortify their faith in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too badly.

Inconvenience Number 3: A complete deficiency of domain manipulation menus

Do we need to refer to the complete shortage of a modern domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois info, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" interface at all. That's an immense drawback. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Negative Side Number 4: Multiple login places (min 2, max 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration tool? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting distributor. At times, depending on the invoicing transaction system (principally built for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting supplier is availing of, the keen clients can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management platform; 2: the ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty CP sections to pick up... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a superb idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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