How does cpanel web hosting function?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel hosting offers on the present webspace hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web space hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing niche, which generates a great amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering literally the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web page hosting platform/CP alternative. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "site hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The hosting "diversity" and the web site hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web page hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a regular bloke who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web page development processes and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any webspace hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web space hosting distributors out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique hosting brand names around the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on the current web page hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied most web page hosting industry demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side Number One: A stupid domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to erase on the server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous 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 erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

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

Are you growing confused? We undoubtedly are!

Negative Sign No.2: The very same email folder system

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly strengthen their faith in God when coping with the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too irretrievably.

Negative Point No.3: A total deficiency of domain administration sections

Do we have to cite the total absence of a modern domain name administration tool - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domains' Whois info, shield the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a considerable weakness. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Weak Point No.4: Multiple user login places (minimum two, maximum three)

What about the need for an additional login to avail of the invoicing, domain and technical support management software solution? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web site hosting service provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the billing transaction system (principally designed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the devoted customers can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Problem No.5: 120+ Control Panel sections to become acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 sections inside the CP. It's an excellent idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them fast... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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