How does cpanel-based site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based web hosting offerings on the current hosting marketplace are generated by a quite insignificant marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing exactly 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 site hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace supply the very same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200k "website hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The web page hosting "variety" and the web space hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting brand names. Imagine you are just a regular guy who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any site hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k website hosting companies in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique web page hosting brand names all over the world will give you strictly the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

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

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps met most hosting industry preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Point Number 1: A stupid domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very careful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, 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. Observe for yourself how great 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)
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 becoming nonplussed? We certainly are!

Negative Sign Number 2: The same email folder structure

The email folder structure on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly enhance their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to mess things up too fatally.

Weak Side Number Three: A sheer absence of domain administration menus

Do we need to point out the sheer shortage of a modern domain name administration user interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois details, shield the Whois information, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a great problem. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Downside Number 4: Multiple user login places (min 2, maximum 3)

What about the need for an extra login to make use of the invoicing, domain and technical support management menu? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based webspace hosting service provider. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing tool (principally conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting company is using, the earnest users can wind up with two extra login places (1: the billing/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support software), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web site hosting Control Panel departments to memorize... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ sections inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to learn each of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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