How does cpanel-based site hosting work?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the contemporary hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insignificant marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller webspace hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which supplies an enormous amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing strictly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the whole site hosting marketplace provide one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web page hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web site hosting CP option. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 site hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

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

The web page hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply an average person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the web site hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k web space hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web site hosting brand names around the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace is... Period.

The webspace hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled all webspace hosting business prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

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

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next 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 delete on the hosting server, since they all are placed 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder setup 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 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 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 becoming baffled? We doubtlessly are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The same e-mail folder structure

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly strengthen their faith in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too fatally.

Downside No.3: A total absence of domain management interfaces

Do we have to bring up the total absence of a contemporary domain administration tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois information, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a gigantic problem. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Side Number Four: Numerous user login places (min two, max three)

How about the demand for an extra login to utilize the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration software platform? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting firm. Sometimes, depending on the billing transaction tool (principally created for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting provider is making use of, the eager customers can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Drawback No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP areas to get to know... swiftly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up briskly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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