How does cpanel web site hosting function?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on the contemporary webspace hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial business segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small-size marketing segment, which supplies a vast number of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering absolutely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offerings on the entire hosting market offer absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

The hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel web site hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly covered all web page hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number 1: A laughable domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very careful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder system 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)
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 growing disorientated? We certainly are!

Inconvenience No.2: The very same electronic mail folder system

The email folder structure on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly reinforce their faith in God when managing the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Disadvantage Number Three: An entire lack of domain name manipulation menus

Do we have to refer to the sheer absence of a contemporary domain management platform - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois information, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a mammoth predicament. An unjustifiable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Aspect No.4: Many login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an extra login to use the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration GUI? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web site hosting provider. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (especially built for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting company is availing of, the avid users can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain name management section; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), ending up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Downside Number Five: More than 120 Control Panel areas to pick up... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them swiftly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting providers:

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