How does cpanel website hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the contemporary site hosting marketplace are provided by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web space hosting is a type of a small-scale business niche, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web page hosting offerings on the whole webspace hosting marketplace offer strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web page hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "web page hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply an average bloke who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and websites . Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any website hosting variant you can opt for? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k webspace hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different site hosting brand names in the world will give you precisely the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the contemporary site hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably met all website hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Side No.1: A laughable domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very attentive not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, 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 try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here is placed)
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 name)

Are you getting baffled? We undeniably are!

Inconvenience No.2: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The e-mail folder structure on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly increase their faith in God when handling the email folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too severely.

Negative Aspect No.3: An entire shortage of domain administration interfaces

Do we need to point out the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain management tool - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois details, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's an immense shortcoming. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Problem No.4: Numerous login places (minimum two, max three)

How about the demand for another login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration GUI? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web site hosting supplier. At times, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (principally created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting distributor is making use of, the zealous customers can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain name administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Side No.5: 120+ webspace hosting CP menus to grasp... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based hosting providers:

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