How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offers on the current web site hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial business niche (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which furnishes a huge quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet providing precisely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire web site hosting market offer strictly the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web space hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200,000 "web site hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The site hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web space hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an ordinary person who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the site making procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and web sites . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k hosting suppliers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web space hosting brand names across the world will offer you the same cPanel web space hosting CP and platform, named differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's webspace hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel web page hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps met most web page hosting industry prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number 1: A foolish domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra attentive not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to delete on the web hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)

Are you getting perplexed? We undoubtedly are!

Weak Point No.2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to screw things up too irreparably.

Negative Sign Number 3: A complete lack of domain administration menus

Do we need to cite the utter deficiency of a contemporary domain manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois info, secure the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a colossal shortcoming. An unforgivable one, we wish to add...

Weak Side No.4: Numerous login locations (min two, max three)

How about the need for another login to utilize the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support management software? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web site hosting corporation. Now and then, based on the invoicing transaction platform (especially meant for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is availing of, the devoted users can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the billing/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point No.5: 120+ webspace hosting CP sections to become familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to get familiar with each of them. And you'd better get to know them promptly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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