cPanel Website Hosting Explanation

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the current web hosting market are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing absolutely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace provide absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "web hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely a normal fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web page creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and web sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brands across the world will give you the very same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably covered most hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Side Number One: An imbecilic domain name folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extra watchful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next 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 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 name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
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 disorientated? We unquestionably are!

Negative Point No.2: The very same email folder arrangement

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly fortify their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too seriously.

Weakness Number 3: A total lack of domain management sections

Do we need to mention the entire absence of a contemporary domain manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, change domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" menu at all. That's a great drawback. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Weak Side No.4: Many login locations (min two, max 3)

How about the necessity for another login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting company. At times, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (principally created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the keen users can wind up with two extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support software), ending up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: More than 120 web hosting CP menus to grasp... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them swiftly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting companies:

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