How does cpanel-based site hosting work?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on the contemporary web space hosting market are generated by a quite unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a kind of a small-size business niche, which supplies a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing the very same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire webspace hosting marketplace offer absolutely the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/web site hosting CP choice. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200,000 site hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200k "web page hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web page hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a regular guy who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website development processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200k website hosting corporations in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different site hosting brands around the world will give you precisely the same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the present site hosting market is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably met all web page hosting industry prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect No.1: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call 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 delete on the hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here is located)
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 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)

Are you becoming baffled? We undoubtedly are!

Downside Number 2: The very same e-mail folder system

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly enhance their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too irreparably.

Downside Number Three: An absolute shortage of domain name administration GUIs

Do we need to point out the absolute shortage of a modern domain administration user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a vast downside. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Inconvenience Number Four: Many login locations (min 2, max three)

How about the need for an additional login to use the billing, domain and technical support administration GUI? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based hosting provider. At times, depending on the billing transaction tool (especially tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting vendor is using, the earnest customers can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing/domain name administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: More than 120 CP sections to memorize... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the CP. It's a wonderful idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them fast... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting service providers:

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