How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on the contemporary hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a type of a small-size business niche, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace offer the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting price tags are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other webspace hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web page hosting brand names. Assume you are merely a normal fellow who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web page hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand web page hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web page hosting brand names across the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the contemporary web page hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly fulfilled most web space hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number One: An idiotic domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra careful not to remove completely 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 domain names are very easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are created 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 situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
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 name)

Are you becoming perplexed? We surely are!

Inconvenience Number Two: The very same email folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly increase their belief in God when tackling the email folders on the mail server, praying not to screw things up too gravely.

Downside Number 3: A thorough lack of domain name management options

Do we have to bring up the complete shortage of a contemporary domain management menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois info, shield the Whois details, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" section at all. That's a considerable downside. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Problem Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the need for another login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain and technical support management user interface? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel webspace hosting supplier. Now and then, depending on the invoicing tool (particularly made for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is availing of, the enthusiastic customers can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), winding up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty site hosting CP sections to pick up... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a great idea to get to know each of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting corporations:

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