How does cpanel web hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the present web space hosting marketplace are provided by a very inconsiderable business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web space hosting is a sort of a small-size business segment, which furnishes a big amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing literally the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace supply strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based site hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web site hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web site hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200k "site hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The website hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only an average bloke who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the site making procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brand names around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web site hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the current web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

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

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps met most webspace hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect No.1: A stupid domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra careful not to remove completely 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the web server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder configuration 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)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 becoming confused? We doubtlessly are!

Negative Point No.2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The mail folder structure on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin boys strongly fortify their faith in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too fatally.

Negative Aspect Number Three: A sheer absence of domain manipulation tools

Do we need to mention the absolute absence of a modern domain name manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois information, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an immense downside. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Disadvantage No.4: Many user login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the need for an extra login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel site hosting service provider. Now and then, depending on the billing transaction tool (particularly conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting company is availing of, the enthusiastic customers can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain management software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Drawback Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP menus to get familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ areas inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better learn them promptly... That's extremely impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting distributors:

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