How does cpanel hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel site hosting offerings on the present web page hosting market are furnished by a very insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web space hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which furnishes a big amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing strictly the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web page hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace provide the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other webspace hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k site hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web space hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The webspace hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different webspace hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply an average fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and sites . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web space hosting option you can pick? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 web page hosting companies in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique webspace hosting brand names worldwide will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the present-day web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly covered most site hosting market requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number 1: A foolish domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra attentive not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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 name)
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)

Are you growing puzzled? We absolutely are!

Negative Aspect Number Two: The very same e-mail folder structure

The email folder arrangement on the hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to muck things up too badly.

Disadvantage Number Three: A total absence of domain name management interfaces

Do we need to bring up the absolute lack of a modern domain administration tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a vast drawback. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...

Shortcoming Number 4: Numerous user login places (min two, max 3)

What about the need for an additional login to access the invoicing, domain and tech support management section? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web page hosting company. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction platform (principally created for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is making use of, the avid clients can end up with two additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management interface; 2: the ticket support software solution), winding up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Predicament No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP areas to grasp... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ departments inside the web page hosting CP. It's a fine idea to learn each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them briskly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web space hosting vendors:

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