How does cpanel-based web hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on the present site hosting market are provided by a very unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-size business segment, which furnishes a great number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing absolutely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the webspace hosting offers on the entire webspace hosting marketplace supply literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based webspace hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web space hosting platform/hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200,000 "website hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The web page hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web site hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely a normal bloke who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can decide upon? Of course there is, at present there are more than 200k web page hosting firms in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different hosting brand names all over the world will give you precisely the same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the present-day hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably covered most site hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Shortcoming Number 1: A stupid domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely watchful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the hosting server, because they all are situated 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 situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 absolutely are!

Downside No.2: The very same email folder structure

The mail folder structure on the server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly reinforce their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the mail server, praying not to bungle things up too seriously.

Drawback Number 3: A thorough shortage of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we need to refer to the utter absence of a modern domain administration tool - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a colossal weakness. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Weakness Number Four: Many user login places (minimum 2, max three)

How about the necessity for an additional login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management platform? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based hosting provider. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (principally made for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is utilizing, the eager users can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support system), winding up with an aggregate of three user login places (including cPanel).

Drawback No.5: More than 120 web site hosting Control Panel departments to become acquainted with... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better pick them up fast... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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