cPanel Website Hosting Description

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting market are provided by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small business niche, which furnishes a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying exactly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the whole website hosting market offer one and the very same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...

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

The hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only an average chap who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting variant you can opt for? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 web hosting companies out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brand names all over the world will give you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on today's hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a mammoth stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably covered most web hosting market prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness No.1: A dumb domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra cautious 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 delete on the web 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 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 domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 getting perplexed? We definitely are!

Negative Sign Number Two: The very same email folder arrangement

The mail folder structure on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too irreparably.

Inconvenience Number Three: An absolute shortage of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we have to point out the sheer absence of a contemporary domain name administration tool - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois details, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" tool at all. That's an immense shortcoming. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Drawback No.4: Numerous login locations (min 2, maximum three)

How about the need for an extra login to access the billing transaction, domain name and technical support management platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel hosting distributor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing tool (principally made for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting supplier is availing of, the zealous users can wind up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management software platform; 2: the ticket support tool), winding up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP sections to get familiar with... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them fast... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting firms:

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