How does cpanel site hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offers on the present-day webspace hosting marketplace are generated by a quite inconsiderable business segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-size business segment, which furnishes an immense amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering one and the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web space hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market offer one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web space hosting platform/site hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "web site hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The web hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only a normal person who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website making procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting option you can select? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting suppliers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different webspace hosting brands in the world will offer you the very same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably satisfied most webspace hosting market demands. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side Number One: A stupid domain folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very watchful not to remove 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). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to delete on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)
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 confused? We doubtlessly are!

Inconvenience No.2: The very same email folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder structure on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly enhance their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the email server, praying not to fuck things up too severely.

Negative Sign Number 3: An utter absence of domain management user interfaces

Do we need to refer to the absolute lack of a modern domain name administration platform - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" menu at all. That's a huge weakness. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Sign Number 4: Numerous user login places (minimum two, max 3)

What about the need for an additional login to use the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration interface? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web space hosting service provider. At times, based on the invoicing system (principally intended for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting distributor is using, the eager customers can wind up with two extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty webspace hosting Control Panel sections to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ sections inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them quickly... That's inordinately impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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