How does cpanel web hosting work?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web site hosting offerings on the present-day website hosting marketplace are provided by a very insubstantial business segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web space hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing niche, which furnishes a big amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering one and the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the webspace hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace provide one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "site hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The webspace hosting "diversity" and the web space hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply an average bloke who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the site making processes and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting variant you can pick? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 web page hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brands across the world will give you strictly the same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the current website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web site hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably answered all hosting business requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side No.1: An idiotic domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very watchful not to remove 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 domains are very easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how excellent 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)
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 growing perplexed? We clearly are!

Weak Side No.2: The same e-mail folder setup

The mail folder structure on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin boys strongly enhance their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too seriously.

Weak Side Number 3: A total shortage of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we have to point out the entire lack of a modern domain name management tool - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a big disadvantage. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Weak Point Number 4: Many login places (min two, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to make use of the billing transaction, domain name and technical support management section? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web hosting company. At times, on the basis of the billing tool (especially tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting distributor is utilizing, the keen customers can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing/domain administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with a total of three login places (counting cPanel).

Downside No.5: More than 120 hosting Control Panel menus to get familiar with... promptly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 sections inside the hosting CP. It's a fine idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them fast... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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