What In Fact is cPanel Web Hosting?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on the current web hosting market are generated by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized business niche, which supplies an immense amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering literally the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace supply literally the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The website hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are only an ordinary chap who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and web pages. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any website hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands across the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on today's web hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

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

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably met all web hosting industry prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem Number 1: A stupid domain folder system

If you have two or more domains, however, be ultra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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)
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 name)

Are you growing baffled? We doubtlessly are!

Negative Point Number 2: The very same email folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The admin blokes strongly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too severely.

Negative Side Number 3: An entire shortage of domain management sections

Do we have to cite the thorough absence of a modern domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" interface at all. That's a vast shortcoming. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Predicament Number Four: Multiple user login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an extra login to utilize the billing transaction, domain name and technical support administration software? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel website hosting vendor. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (principally developed for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting distributor is availing of, the zealous customers can end up with two extra logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the ticket support software), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Downside No.5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel menus to memorize... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to become familiar with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up fast... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting distributors:

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