How does cpanel site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the present web hosting market are provided by a very insubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small business niche, which generates an immense quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing strictly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire site hosting market furnish precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/webspace hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "web hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The site hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a regular bloke who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page making processes and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and web portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any website hosting alternative you can select? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand hosting companies out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different site hosting brands around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on today's website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based webspace hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably covered all site hosting business demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side No.1: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extra attentive not to erase entirely 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 very simple to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

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

Are you getting confused? We positively are!

Problem No.2: The same e-mail folder system

The mail folder structure on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly reinforce their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too fatally.

Negative Point No.3: An absolute deficiency of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we have to mention the sheer shortage of a contemporary domain name manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois info, protect the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" menu at all. That's a considerable problem. An unjustifiable one, we wish to add...

Negative Sign No.4: Many login places (min 2, maximum three)

What about the necessity for another login to make use of the billing, domain and technical support administration GUI? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel hosting company. At times, on the basis of the invoicing system (especially tailored for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is making use of, the avid users can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the billing/domain name administration GUI; 2: the ticket support interface), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Disadvantage No.5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel menus to get familiar with... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ departments inside the site hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them briskly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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