What In Fact is cPanel Web Hosting?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offerings on the current website hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insubstantial business segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which provides an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying strictly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market offer the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only an ordinary bloke who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any web hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200,000 web hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names all over the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the current website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably answered all website hosting industry demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number 1: A foolish domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra watchful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder arrangement 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 name)
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)

Are you becoming puzzled? We absolutely are!

Negative Sign Number Two: The very same e-mail folder system

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin chums firmly increase their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too severely.

Negative Point Number 3: A sheer absence of domain manipulation user interfaces

Do we have to bring up the absolute absence of a modern domain management platform - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois info, protect the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a big drawback. An unpardonable one, we want to add...

Drawback Number 4: Numerous user login locations (min two, max 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support management platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting firm. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (principally invented for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting company is availing of, the devoted users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration section; 2: the ticket support software platform), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Downside Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty hosting CP menus to pick up... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them quickly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting vendors:

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