How does cpanel-based web hosting work?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web space hosting offerings on the present-day web hosting market are furnished by a very unsubstantial business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller webspace hosting is a type of a small-scale business niche, which generates an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing one and the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web page hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace provide the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting prices are identical. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other webspace hosting platform/webspace hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200k "web page hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The site hosting "variety" and the web site hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web page hosting brand names. Assume you are merely a normal chap who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site creation procedures and the web page hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and websites . Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k site hosting suppliers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brand names in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the diversity on the present web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps fulfilled most hosting business requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign Number One: A stupid domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra attentive not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure 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 name)
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!

Problem No.2: The same email folder configuration

The email folder structure on the server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to fuck things up too irreparably.

Negative Sign No.3: A complete shortage of domain management tools

Do we have to cite the entire deficiency of a modern domain manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois information, secure the Whois information, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" tool at all. That's a great weakness. An unforgivable one, we want to add...

Weak Point Number Four: Numerous login places (min two, maximum three)

What about the demand for an additional login to use the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration software platform? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web site hosting vendor. Now and then, based on the invoicing platform (particularly made for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting corporation is utilizing, the devoted customers can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain management user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: 120+ web space hosting CP areas to pick up... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting providers:

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