How does cpanel-based site hosting work?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based site hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very unsubstantial business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small marketing segment, which provides a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the site hosting offerings on the whole web space hosting marketplace furnish the very same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel site hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web site hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200k "website hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The web hosting "variety" and the site hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different webspace hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary guy who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the site making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and web pages . Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can select? Of course there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web page hosting brands in the world will give you precisely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the current site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps met most web page hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side Number 1: A moronic domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, however, be ultra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to remove on the web server, because 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 placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
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 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 name)

Are you getting baffled? We absolutely are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The very same email folder structure

The mail folder structure on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly increase their faith in God when handling the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too severely.

Negative Point No.3: A total deficiency of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we need to refer to the thorough lack of a contemporary domain management platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, edit domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an enormous drawback. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Weak Side Number Four: Many login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the need for another login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management software? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel hosting supplier. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (principally devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting vendor is making use of, the ardent clients can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel departments to memorize... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 sections inside the site hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better become familiar with them rapidly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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