How does cpanel web hosting work?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel website hosting offers on the current hosting marketplace are provided by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing segment, which generates an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering exactly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the whole web page hosting marketplace offer absolutely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/web page hosting Control Panel option. So, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web space hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "web space hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The web hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average chap who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and websites . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting option you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different web site hosting brand names across the world will give you the same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the contemporary site hosting market is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based site hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably answered most website hosting market preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage No.1: A stupid domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, however, be ultra careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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. Check for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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)

Are you growing bewildered? We undeniably are!

Shortcoming No.2: The very same e-mail folder system

The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums firmly fortify their faith in God when handling the email folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too seriously.

Weak Side Number 3: An entire lack of domain name manipulation menus

Do we have to cite the utter shortage of a contemporary domain management user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois details, shield the Whois info, change/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an immense downside. An unjustifiable one, we would like to point out...

Inconvenience No.4: Multiple login locations (minimum two, max 3)

How about the need for another login to avail of the billing, domain and technical support administration system? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web space hosting distributor. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (principally conceived for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the devoted customers can wind up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web page hosting CP departments to get familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 sections inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting firms:

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